Special Interest Groups

A few groups on campus are geared specifically for a certain discipline, idea, or interest. Many of these serve as a platform to introduce and promote new ideas to students such as fitness, health, and the green initiative. Students often find themselves through these special interest groups while also gaining insight into new aspects of the ever expanding world we live in.
