Student Organizations

Why?

Find your people. Getting involved in student organizations is not just beneficial, but imperative, to a well-rounded, educated, and memory-filled college experience.

One of the biggest advantages of a large university is the amount of opportunities. UConn is bustling with over 600 clubs. There is sure to be something that interests you, and if not, you can always find a group of people with a similar interest and start your own!

Connections are made through these activities, connections that can impact you for years on end. Whether its wanting to sharpen a skill or even just pick up a new one, UConn has the organization for you.

How?

  1. Attend the Involvement FairEach year, UConn hosts a giant event on Fairfield Way that showcases all the organizations it has to offer. Stop by there in the fall and talk to some clubs that interest you
  2. Utilize UConntact. UConntact is a site that gathers all the clubs offered in one central area. If you're feeling a bit shy, or missed the fair, you can always read up on some clubs on there.
  3. Discover your intention. Avoid signing up for a multitude of clubs, to the point where you feel like you cannot handle all of them at once.
  4. Start your own. If you can't find an existing club that matches your needs, feel free to start your own! It will show great initiative and be a fantastic leadership experience.
