We want to help you explore your passions and build a network of support!
Joining a student service organization is a great way to meet peers with similar interests, build your network outside the university, and practice your leadership. Students in service organizations attend organization-specific meetings, interact with local community leaders, volunteer at a non-profit or NGO, or facilitate fundraising and philanthropy events.
Many of the student organizations have a service and philanthropy mission. Consider exploring groups based on your specific interest, connected to your academic program, or through a fraternity or sorority organization.
Below is a small sampling of the student service organizations at GCSU. You can learn more about all student organizations and explore upcoming events through the GC Connect Portal.
