Essex County College is committed to providing a well rounded experience for our students through imaginative and interrelated projects. The Student Life and Activities (SL&A) Office heightens and enhances student life by planning and coordinating a variety of social, cultural, intellectual, and recreational programs. SL&A publishes and distributes the LIFELINE student handbook, the ECCO student newspaper, the ECCOLOG yearbook, and other promotional publications. It also coordinates the sales of discount tickets to area cultural and sporting events, maintains a directory of off-campus housing listings, handles judicial affairs, and operates the Clara E. Dasher Student Center.


The Student Life and Activities Office is located in the Dasher Student Center at the main campus and in the Student Lounge at the West Essex Campus.
