There are many student organizations across our three campuses who provide opportunity for you to build community with like-minded individuals and individuals with shared identities. Many of these organizations are hosting virtual events each week. You can utilize keywords or categories to find specific groups of organizations. On each organization’s profile, utilize the “Join” or “Contact” features on the organization’s profile page to share your interest and ask questions.
