Welcome to the Office of Campus Activities
At our core, we accomplish our mission through championing over 300 student-run organizations, which includes providing support for event planning, financial management, and leadership development; coordinating meaningful service trips during spring break; through general advisement of student leaders; and by facilitating opportunities for students to engage outside the classroom. The OCA team consists of dedicated professionals committed to the growth and development of our students.
Through co-curricular engagement, we believe students learn new skills, build diverse networks, add valuable experiences to their resumes, maintain a positive connection to Drexel University, and have fun!
We invite you to get involved and take advantage of opportunities that will impact your life, as well as the lives of your peers, Drexel University, the local community, and our world. We look forward to collaborating with you through your evolving, lifelong leadership journey.
Director, Office of Campus Activities
The Office of Campus Activities (OCA) provides opportunities for meaningful co-curricular engagement that develop self-awareness, interpersonal skills, and citizenship, that connect with/to academic, co-op, and professional experiences.
Additionally, OCA facilitates involvement, fiscal management, and leadership development for student organizations; social, educational, cultural, and spiritual activities; and alternative spring break. We do so at the University City and Center City Campuses.
