There was a fairly robust (but, in my opinion, underutilized) career center. There is a network of alumns who students can contact regarding various fields (i.e. if you think you want to go to law school you can contact an alumn in the network and talk to them about their career).

A capella groups were as popular as Greek life is at other schools. Drama and the arts are all popular, unsurprisingly. Sports were also a focus for many students, though not like in a Division 1 school.
