Student Organizations & Clubs
Campus Life is the hub of student involvement and engagement at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. College students spend the majority of their time outside the classroom and the Office of Campus Life highlights the many opportunities available for students to enhance and complement their academic pursuits. Within Campus Life, there are hundreds of opportunities for student involvement in leadership, student media, student government, volunteer organizations, Greek-letter organizations, programming, and commuter involvement. Our wide variety of student organizations reflect a diversity of student interests. Co-curricular involvement through student organizations allows students to explore, broaden their interests, test and improve skills in leadership, interpersonal relations, organizational development, group dynamics, and budgeting.
As an extension of the educational process, it is our vision to enhance the opportunities for students to explore their individual skills and talents. By allowing for personal growth though participation in leadership experiences, University activities, and community service projects, we are preparing students for a competitive global society. The Office of Campus Life is committed to providing educational, cultural, social, recreational, and leadership opportunities. We strive to develop and employ strategies that are responsive to the diverse needs of the University community and foster an environment conducive to increase retention and graduation rates.
