Extracurricular activities offer students opportunities and experiences that both supplement and extend beyond the classroom. The Activities Leadership Practicum Seminar, otherwise known as ALPS is a full-year, credit-bearing course that is open only to student leaders in core extracurricular organizations. The group of student leaders explores leadership concepts, skills, and techniques. Student leaders observe, apply, and practice these lessons during the week as they fulfill their leadership roles within their respective organizations. Participation in ALPS is voluntary but highly encouraged.
