About Office of Campus Activities

Mission Statement

The Office of Campus Activities (OCA) provides opportunities for meaningful co-curricular engagement that develop self-awareness, interpersonal skills and citizenship, that connect with and to academic, co-op and professional experiences.

We accomplish our mission through:

  • Championing over 300 student-run organizations
  • Providing support for event planning, financial management and organizational development
  • Coordinating meaningful service trips during spring break
  • Providing general advisement to student leaders
  • Facilitating opportunities for students to engage outside the classroom

Through getting involved, we believe students learn new skills, build diverse networks and friendships, add valuable experiences to their resumes, maintain a positive connection to Drexel University and have fun.

What students learn through engagement is transferable to academic, co-op and professional settings. We invite you take advantage of numerous opportunities offered at Drexel that will impact your life, as well as the lives of your peers, Drexel, the local community and our world. We look forward to collaborating with you through your evolving, lifelong leadership journey.

Caitlyn Schock, Coordinator of Campus Engagement (cmb596@drexel.edu)

Caitlyn began working at Drexel in August 2016. She received her undergraduate degree at Oregon State University, where she was involved as a resident assistant, an academic coach, and an assistant at the student government's Office of Legal Advising. She completed her master's degree in health communication at George Mason University. While at George Mason, Caitlyn was a graduate assistant with the Office of Student Involvement, primarily advising the Patriot Activities Council and overseeing the Weekends at Mason program, which planned and promoted weekend and late night events. After graduating and working in positions outside of higher education, Caitlyn realized that she wanted to return permanently to student affairs. She is excited to be once again working with involvement initiatives and student development.

Sarah Olsen, Assistant Director of Campus Engagement (smo68@drexel.edu)

Sarah began working with Drexel Campus Activities in July 2014. Prior to Drexel, Sarah attended Rowan University, where she received her master's degree in higher education and administration. During her time at Rowan, she served as a Graduate Coordinator for the Office of Student Activities and the Rowan After Hours program, assisting in the execution of all late night programming. In Sarah’s undergraduate years at Seton Hall University she served on the executive board of both the Student Activities Board and the Public Relations Student Society of America. Her love of being an active member of the Seton Hall community lead her to pursue higher education as a career. She hopes to spark a similar passion for involvement in extracurricular activities and the Drexel community with the students she works with in her new role.
