The Office of Campus and Community Engagement hosts a variety of events and programs throughout the year. As one of the first stepping stones for involvement on campus and with peers, our goal is to provide students with opportunities to become a part of campus and educate about resources available to them in addition to forming connections. These events do not include the ones hosted by the Campus Activities Board or LionHeart.
