We are so glad you have chosen to join the Railsplitter family. As our namesake and legacy, President Lincoln, once said, "There are no accidents in my philosophy. Every effect must have its cause. The past is the cause of the present, and the present will be the cause of the future. All these are links in the endless chain stretching from the finite to the infinite.”
In Student Affairs, we aim to help you maximize the potential of your experience as a Railsplitter due of this philosophy of President Lincoln. The desired “effect” for students is graduation and a career path, but along the journey to get there, Student Affairs helps you to have the best experience possible. In the Office of Enrollment & Student Affairs, we have the privilege and responsibility of being a part of the “cause.” You will play a vital role in ensuring that your collegiate experience is full of learning, fun new experiences, growth, and relationships that will last a lifetime.
In the following webpages, you will find some helpful information about all that Student Affairs can offer you as a Railsplitter. Take the time to familiarize yourself with the contents of this website and let it serve as a guide to your collegiate experience.
Welcome aboard, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out and ask. The Railsplitter Nation is more than just a close-knit community of students, faculty, & staff—we’re a family.
All the best,
Dr. Jody Goins
