ANTS Center Programs

Our programs are planned to be relevant for nontraditional and transfer students. Programs are funded by student fees and all students across campus are welcome. Why do we place so much emphasis on extra-curricular activity? Because students who get involved tend to complete their studies. There is a direct, causal relationship between your social experience at school and your academic success. One of the strongest influences on college retention and satisfaction is involvement. That's why the ANTS Center and Austin Peay set up so many opportunities for students to get involved. From student organizations to extra-curricular lectures and recreational field trips, the connections you make while tending to this part of your university experience can last a lifetime and provide you with inspiration right when you need it most.

Even though involvement can be difficult, especially for students with children, it is easily accomplished by just attending a program, a sporting event, or even the gym. All of these activities statistically improve the chances for degree completion. Family Pool Night

Some of the programs we offer include the regular Commuter Coffee Breaks, Take Me Out to the Ballgame, and Transfer Transitions. Many of these programs are created to allow you and your family to attend together. You can find more information about all of our programs and events on PeayLink or on our semester calendar below. PeayLink also lists all of our active student organizations on campus!
