The Office of Campus Activities believes that an incredibly valuable aspect of Drexel University’s education happens outside of the classroom. Participation in student organizations is where leadership is developed, community engagement occurs, and intellectual, religious, and social interests are met. These opportunities enrich and enhance your Drexel experience, while the interpersonal and organizational skills you exercise will prove invaluable in your co-op and when you graduate.
Through the Office of Campus Activities and DragonLink, our online student organization directory, get connected to student organizations that interest you. And if you cannot find a group that meets your needs, then we will help you start a new one. DragonLink is available through DrexelOne, by clicking the “drexel” tab.
