Student Involvement Suite

STUDENT INVOLVEMENT SUITE

In anticipation of the full renovation of Student Involvement Suite, the Stamp wants to ensure student groups have access to vital resources they need to feel supported and be successful in their endeavors. New features in the Student Involvement Suite this fall include the  following: reservable meeting rooms, storage space, work rooms (TerraPods), a technology resource room, and special marketing and peer consultant services. Although the Student Involvement Suite offerings will primarily serve student groups, it will also be a place for students to learn about involvement opportunities. The SORC staff will be able to assist with OrgSync and other resources. Other Stamp programs, e.g. MICA Brown Bag series, will take place in the suite which can benefit both individual students and groups. Groups who have similar missions will also be invited to have networking events which could also be a way for students to learn more about these organizations.  For more information, please visit the SORC Office.
