Office of Student Services

We Change Lives

The Office of Student Services enhances the educational mission of the University through engaging students in co-curricular programs and activities that promote development in the areas of leadership, professionalism, cultural awareness, service learning, morality, fiscal awareness, social ability, and recreation. The department also provides management and oversight of auxiliary services including Holbrook Student Union, campus dining, campus housing, and the recreation complex. The Office of Student Services is the administrative authority for student rights and responsibilities including the Student Code of Conduct. The department ensures each of these operations works efficiently to meet the needs of McNeese State University students.

The motto of student engagement at McNeese is “E3 – Enhancing Education through Engagement”. It is proven that the educational experience of a college student is enhanced by engaging in student life and through building a deeper connection to the university. We look forward to working with you and showcasing McNeese’s “excellence with a personal touch”!
