student life

Being a part of an on-campus organization not only offers a chance for you to meet other students with the same interests but also provides great learning opportunities – whether you want to improve your networking skills, discover your leadership personality, enhance your creativity, or just tune in to your playful side and have fun.  

We have a diverse selection of opportunities on campus. During your orientation week, be sure to attend our Organization Fair, where you can see all that UC has to offer, meet the members of each group, and find the right fit for your interests.

If you don’t see an organization that interests you, you can start a new one. To do this, you need five interested students and a faculty/staff advisor. Then, set up a meeting with our Coordinator of Student Involvement to assist you with the rest of the process.

*Students are required to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5 to be eligible to participate in a student organization.

  • Professional Organizations
  • Greek Life
  • Student Government
  • Student Activities Board
