How Your Student Can Get Involved on Campus
There are many different ways students can become involved on campus such as joining a student club or organization, community service and volunteering; on-campus jobs, internships, and research; and much more. All these involvement opportunities help students gain important practical leadership and communication skills, as well as developing a sense of community and building new support systems by meeting like-minded peers, and interacting with others with diverse opinions and life experiences.
Campus Life Opportunities
With over 350+ recognized student clubs and organizations on campus, there is something for everyone! If your student isn't sure about which group to join, every semester, the department of Student Engagement and Activities hosts Involvement Fairs, which are the main touchpoint for students to connect with others with similar interests, or to try something new! They can also take this quiz and find out what type of organization best fits their interests.
In addition, SBEngaged, and its mobile component, the CORQ App, are your student's connection to all campus activities and events. They can download the CORQ app from the App Store or Google App Store and then connect to Stony Brook University for a daily calendar of events.
