College is a time to learn, explore, and grow. At Chatham we believe that life outside of the classroom is just as educational and rewarding as time in it, and so we work to provide the opportunities, resources, and services that will achieve that. We encourage students to go out and experience what Chatham has to offer by getting involved and making a difference not only for the campus, but for themselves. Learn more about student life.
