Find Community

Three students with cellos

Looking for ways to meet other students or become part of a community? We’ve put together some ideas to help you stay connected during your time at U-M. Whether you’re looking to attend a fun event, become a volunteer, or join a student organization, there are many opportunities for students to build relationships and contribute to the community. You can also visit the events calendar, Happening @ Michigan, to see what’s going on all over campus, or take a look at our weekly event suggestions.

Please note: Some boards offer sign ups seasonally, which means you might be interested in joining them when they are not openly taking on members. It’s still worth reaching out! Email the organization you are interested in to get more information about opportunities.

Meeting people and growing friendships is an important part of the university experience! The options above reflect opportunities within Student Life. You can also check with your academic unit to see if they have additional options.
