Tailor your campus experience.

Get involved:  Clubs and organizations on campus provide invaluable opportunities for learning, networking and developing business skills. These groups open doors for future business partnerships, leadership and professional development.

Get active:  What are student groups doing on your campus?

  • Conferences
  • Workshops

  • Consulting engagements
  • Fundraisers
  • Tournaments
  • Trips
  • Social events & formals

Students are now one click away from activities empowered by a wide range of groups including not only student clubs, but also career departments, admissions and alumni.

You can explore and search for specific groups by name, group type and categories. Easily join one or several groups at once or contact group officers directly. Gaining access and engaging in new group activities has never been easier!
