Shawnee State University is committed to seeing our campus grow by expanding the diversity of ideas, perspectives and backgrounds of our community!
We offer a wonderful opportunity for students of color to gain a quality, affordable education. Our tuition is low, we have a true open admissions policy, and our campus is small so you will receive the personal attention and support you need.
We are committed to diversity and understand the cultural impact that you will bring to our campus!
At the heart of an institution of higher education is diversity. We are a problem-solving organization. To find new solutions we need diversity of experience, expression, and opinion in our faculty, staff, and students.
We offer opportunities to get involved through various clubs and organizations like AHANA!
AHANA stands for African * Hispanic * Asian/Pacific * Native * Americans.
AHANA was designed to meet the needs of culturally diverse students on campus by promoting cultural awareness and pride.
As the first International student at SSU to hold the position of AHANA President, my goals are to promote cultural diversity and to see more students involved. Being part of this group gives students the opportunity to socialize with other students of different cultures and to share their cultural differences. Our mission is to address the diverse issues of multicultural students at SSU and create awareness.

We are committed to seeing you succeed in the classroom!
- After being admitted to SSU, advisors work with our multicultural students to provide academic advising, counseling, and tutoring in our Student Success Center.
- Each fall there is a special orientation designed to introduce new multi-ethnic students to community resources, academic support services, and most of all current SSU students of color.
As Coordinator of Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, I am responsible for providing on campus services and programs for our multi-ethnic student, including academic advising, tutorial services, counseling service, and advising the AHANA and the International Student Club. As we become globally connected, what happens in the world directly impacts our University community.
