Welcome to SVC!

On behalf of the Office of Student Life, we would like to welcome you to Skagit Valley College! We are very excited that you have selected SVC for your education, and we are looking forward to working with you. We encourage you to get involved during your stay at Skagit. Whether it’s Athletics, Associated Students (student government), Program Board, clubs, or other student organizations, we know that you will grow, learn, and challenge yourself as a person while being involved with these extracurricular activities. In addition, special programs, major events, campus housing sponsored programming, community service, and leadership opportunities are all excellent ways to become actively engaged on campus. Being involved is the other part of your education/college experience and something that cannot be taught in the classroom. Please stop by and visit us in The Center for Student Leadership, Diversity, and Involvement (C-190) in the Knutzen Cardinal Center. The Offices of Student Life and Multicultural Student Services have partnered to provide a space that is welcoming and available for students to use for many reasons, including group study and projects, planning activities, eating a meal, or just taking a few moments to rest and relax. We hope your experience at SVC is both productive and memorable, and can’t wait to meet you. Once again welcome to SVC! —Student Life Team
