You can join:

  • 300+ student clubs and organizations that focus on diversity, creativity and culture.
  • Varsity and recreational sports teams, including dance, archery and e-sports.
  • Student councils, where you’ll network, make positive change and develop leadership skills you can use after graduation.
  • College communities, which let you meet other students in your program and related fields of study.
