Student Life Office

The Student Life Office (SLO) at St. Paul Institute is grounded in the development and maintenance of student programs that provide opportunities for academic, personal, and professional growth through leadership activities, internships, workshops, orientation, counseling, wellness programs, music programs, and athletics. Participating students acquire the skills they need to work independently and in groups, where they benefit from an exchange of ideas in a richly diverse environment. Students are encouraged to interact with each other, faculty, and staff.

Counseling Service

SPI runs a free-of-charge counseling service which is available to all students and staff of the Institute. Those who feel mentally stressed from difficult situations such as poverty, domestic violence, living away from their family or other demanding situations are encouraged to seek assistance.  Patients who require further care or medication are referred to see doctors in hospitals.

English Association

Recognizing the need for students to strengthen their English communication skills in order to compete in the international arena, The Department of English founded the Debate Program, Presentation Program, and Listening program. All students in the English Department are welcome to join. The club’s members improve their English language competence, general knowledge about Cambodia and the rest of the world, and their reasoning, analytical, and critical thinking skills. They learn to exchange ideas and experiences with one another and develop confidence in public speaking, expressing and defending their own argument. 

Arts Association

The SPI Arts Club aims to provide SPI students with opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities and to socialize with their fellow students across different year levels. The club is about dancing and music and participants learn Khmer and Korean popular dance.

Sport Association

The SPI Sport Club fields teams for five competitive sports – football, volleyball, basketball, table tennis, and boules. These teams compete in the games organized by the apostolic vicariate of Phnom Penh or the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport.

Research Association

Research is a powerful tool for students to develop their capacity for learning and finding new answers to important issues for later generations and society. The SPI Research Club encourages all students to join the research activities including social research and thesis research.

Information Technology Association
