Student Organizations

Enhance your college experience by joining a student organization. Whether you are part-time or full-time, graduate or undergraduate, domestic or international, there is always an organization to help you connect with peers who share your interests or career goals.

New student organizations must contact Kayla McKinney (opens new window) by March 1 to be eligible for funds in the following academic year. Please refer to Engagement, Leadership, and Service (opens new window) for more information.

Student organizations must register with the Office of Engagement, Leadership, and Service (opens new window) each year by May 31 in order to have a website for the academic year. These websites will enable each organization to have contact with students, list meetings, advertise to prospective students, and be linked to the MFECOE website. MFECOE organizations need to be sure their organizations have listed COE on their profile. Jackie Phillips can assist with questions about the registration process.

For questions about COE organizations, contact Kayla McKinney (opens new window).
