A Welcome From The Dean Of Students

Utica College is a place where people come to receive a first-rate education. But they typically come away with a great deal more than that. Each person who studies here builds his or her own personal scrapbook of memorable UC experiences, milestones, and friendships that last a lifetime. That is why so many continue their association with the College long after graduation day. 

This is an extremely vital and diverse community defined by a spirit of discovery, tolerance and mutual support. At the Office of Student Affairs, we strive to ensure that every student has the opportunity to realize the full benefit of UC's uniquely conducive atmosphere for learning and personal growth. 

"Each person who studies here builds his or her own personal scrapbook of memorable UC experiences, milestones, and friendships that last a lifetime."

From the moment you choose to become part of this community, you gain access to the resources you need to make the most of your college career. A central component of our mission is to offer a broad enough spectrum of residential living, dining, and entertainment options to make everyone feel at home, while maintaining essential health and safety services at the highest levels. I am proud to report that Student Affairs fulfills this responsibility with great diligence and consistency.

UC also offers a variety of programs and services to help students achieve their goal of becoming successful in their chosen fields, as well as thoughtful and responsible members of their own communities. Some of these, such as our Career Center, have proven invaluable resources to our graduates well into their professional lives. 

I encourage you to contact our office if you have any questions about student life at Utica College. And I hope I may look forward to meeting you as you embark on your own UC experience.

Best regards,

Robert J. Perkins, Ph.D.
