Get Involved...DO SOMETHING!

With more than 100 student organizations to choose from, the University of Michigan-Flint has an organization for everyone. There are organizations for various academic departments, religions, and cultural backgrounds, as well as organizations for honors, club sports, social fraternities and sororities, service groups, and special interests. Given all these opportunities, it is hard to imagine wanting more.

However, if you can not find an organization that matches your interest, or if you have an idea for a new organization, feel free to talk with staff about forming a new group.

For more information, please contact us in the Department of Student Involvement and Leadership (361 UCEN).
