Student Life

Students often tell us that they’d like to get involved in non-academic activities or programs on campus, but don’t know how or where to get started. Why not let us help? The tools below are your first step toward finding meaningful ways to spend time outside of classroom.

There are many opportunities and ways for you to get involved on campus. Pursuing activities outside of academics that match with hobbies, interests and ambitions is an important factor when it comes to your campus experience and success.
