Your Campus Life Budget has been CUT!
Many programmers have nowhere to turn when they read this announcement, but if you’re like hundreds of other progressive thinking APCA student life advisors, you’ll know exactly what resource to use to combat this problem.
What is APCA?
The Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities specializes in low and no-cost programming for campus life. Our mission is to help student life departments with limited resources make more of an impact on their campuses. APCA is a staunch advocate of purposeful programming that incorporates meaningful, assessable learning outcomes that can improve retention levels on your campus.
Why should I participate in APCA?
Development! We will keep you up to date on the latest professional development trends and student theory, organize and motivate your student boards and give you the resources to stretch your programming dollars. Our workshops and campus activities planning conferences feature nationally-known student life theorists and cost-saving programs to keep your budget under control.
How does APCA help my budget?
We bring value! APCA membership fees are the lowest by far in the marketplace, at only $299 per year. That fee covers every club and student organization on your campus. Our value-packed conference fees also include four hot meals, student life educational sessions for advisors and students, showcases, conference swag and access to all conference events. If you program campus activities, events or facilitate professional or student development programs, we will help you stretch your dollars!
Who else has tried APCA?
APCA has been serving the college marketplace with cutting-edge campus activities resources and training for over 20 years:
“APCA is a fantastic experience for any institution. Large, medium, and small schools can all benefit from what APCA has to offer. Through my years of attending their conferences I have enhanced my knowledge as a student affairs professional, further developed my student leaders, and saved thousands of university dollars through block booking with neighboring institutions. It’s an unbeatable opportunity.”
Kedrick Nicholas, McNeese State University – Sapphire member, 15 years
"The APCA Student/Advisor Workshop 2013 in NYC was an amazing experience for my students and myself. I have been in the field for 10 years and it is not often that I am this refreshed and eager to take on a new year after a conference. The speakers were fantastic and to the point. The staff that coordinated the event could not have been nicer or more welcoming. Overall, it was one of the best conference experiences I have ever had."
Rohry Flood - Director of Student Life
"I would encourage all colleges to attend APCA. It's worth every penny! The staff are extremely friendly and make everyone feel a part of the APCA family. APCA is a great opportunity to see very talented performers from all walks of life and block booking helps to place them in a price range that we can afford. And the Northeast region ROCKS when it comes to partnering to bring acts to the area!"
- Director of Student Life
"I cannot describe how excited my students are every year for the APCA Conference. With the discounts that we get from the Co-op buying process, we are able to save enough money to pay for the entire conference experience. Beyond that, however, it’s great to be able to work with the other schools in our area in a synergistic way. My students have developed great relationships with their peers at other schools as a result of the experience.”

"I have been a member of APCA for the past 16 years. During this time, the APCA staff has always been helpful and supportive of my program. They have provided a safe, affordable way for us (Student Activities Directors) to network with agents, share ideas between schools, and book performers. I am always impressed with their professionalism and creativity at the National Conferences year after year. They have never hesitated to help me when I have needed advice or had questions regarding programing or contractual issues. I would wholeheartedly recommend any school to join APCA."
