Student Involvement Suite

Student Involvement Suite

The renovated Student Involvement Suite, opened in Fall 2016, with the official ribbon cutting on October 1, 2016. The celebration marked years of hard work and rich collaboration between student leaders and staff made possible by the support of generous alumni donors dedicated to creating a space to better serve all students. 

Originally created two decades ago, the Student Involvement Suite has served generations of student leaders and student organizations. Since then, the number of student organizations has nearly tripled! Today there are over 800 registered student organizations. To accommodate this rapid growth, the design for the new Student Involvement Suite was born. 

The Suite houses the offices for the Student Organization Resource CenterStudent Government Association and Student Entertainment Events, and also has a ton of open space with modern technology for students to meet and engage in campus activities. The resources that the Suite offers to student organizations, and how to access them, are listed below. Stop by at any time!
