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.

Student organizations must register with the Office of Engagement, Leadership, and Service each year by May 31 to be placed on the Involvement Network. This will enable organizations to contact students, list meetings, advertise, and be linked to the MFECOE website. MFECOE organizations need to be sure their organizations have listed COE on their profile when registering. ELS ( can assist with questions about the registration process.

For questions about COE organizations, contact Kayla McKinney.
