Students sometimes think that there’s not much to do on campus. The Office of Student Activities (OSA) is responsible for changing that statement. In addition to the OSA housing SAB (Student Activities Board) and COC (Council of Clubs), our office hosts many events and programs throughout the year.
Campus Ministry serves students of all faiths and facilitates the growth of the spiritual life of the campus community, through the sacraments, spiritual guidance, and counseling in the Christian tradition, and is an outreach of evangelization to all.
Youth leadership in liturgical programs, retreats, bible studies, volunteer experiences, academic and spiritual integration, liturgical music involvement and religious education courses are some of the opportunities students are encouraged to be involved in at UST. Students are also invited to be leaders in expanding their faith development and the faith development of their campus community.
