Joining Themed Housing is an opportunity to Engage

Themed Housing provides an opportunity to engage with other students through shared interests, tailored programming, and opportunities to join student organizations on campus.

Emerging leaders program (ELP)

The Emerging Leaders community is open to all First Year Students who seek to discover their leadership potential. Through partnership with the Office of Mission Engagement, ELP undergraduate students are invited to participate in a leadership certificate program during the fall semester, which includes self-discovery, team building, and reflection. This cohort program introduces students to the Social Change Model of Leadership Development through fun, hands-on sessions featuring guest speakers and Peer Mentors.

Once participants complete the ELP certificate, students are encouraged to apply for campus leadership positions such as Student Government, Resident Assistant, Service Fellows, Ambassadors, O-Team, and others as well as develop on-going mentoring relationships with upperclassmen, university staff, and faculty.
