GWU female students at Webbstock 2022

Make the Most of Your College Experience

Welcome to Student Engagement. We are glad you are here!

The Student Engagement Office strives to enhance the overall educational experience of students and serves the campus community through development of, exposure to, participation in, and assistance with intellectual, spiritual, cultural, recreational, social, and leadership opportunities. Student Engagement hosts several events throughout the school year that are designed to bring the Gardner-Webb community together to create memories that will last far beyond a student’s college career.

Student experiences outside the classroom contribute to career, skill, and identity development. By engaging in communities and opportunities that challenge and support growth, students can find a sense of belonging at the University. While there are many opportunities designed to enhance student experience, students define what’s important to them and engage in the opportunities that help them grow in their own way. Gardner-Webb University is here to help students make connections to meaningful experiences and find community.

Whether cheering on the Bulldogs in a free GWU t-shirt, playing bingo and eating pancakes, singing your favorite song at the Open Mic night, or traveling to Charlotte to cheer on the Panthers, Student Engagement has something for everyone. We can’t wait to help you make the most of your college experience!

Find opportunities to get plugged-in on campus.
