Statement of Purpose

Valdosta State University is designated as a residential institution.  As such, it must provide most, if not all, of the goods and services which might be reasonably needed or expected by a student living on campus, the most obvious of these needs being living accommodations, food services, and store facilities.  Auxiliary Services exists to furnish such services directly or indirectly to students, faculty, staff, and charges a fee directly related to the cost of providing the service.

The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, directs us not only to be self-supporting but to provide goods and services to the general public only incidentally.  This means that our services must be restricted to the campus community.  The Division exercises care not to compete with local merchants.

Providing goods and services to students, faculty, and staff in keeping with the missions of the University System of Georgia and of Valdosta State University is our business and our pleasure.
