As an incoming student, you might be wondering, "What's student life like at UCM?" Campus life is a vital part of your success and entertainment, and is defined by UCM's living and dining arrangements, campus activities, student involvement and services. These areas of campus life create an environment in which 11,000 Mules and Jennies are proud to call UCM home.
Living in university housing puts you in the hub of campus life. Residence halls are a short walking distance from all of your classes and all three cafeterias. Meal plans can be purchased for the campus cafeterias, which are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or you can grab a quick bite in the Elliott Union food court.
Living on campus will better your college experience, but getting involved will benefit you in many ways as well. One way you can get involved is through Greek Life. Going Greek will allow you to meet new people through campus activities such as intramural sports, Homecoming and Greek Week. Also, you may participate in sporting events and other competitive activities, give back to the community through philanthropic endeavors or participate in causes such as Habitat for Humanity.
There are many opportunities for you to get involved on campus, including student organizations covering a wide array of interests from rugby to anime. If UCM doesn't have a student organization for your activity of choice, you can start a new one through the Office of Student Activities. Free events are held for students with a wealth of different themes. You will have the opportunity to see comedians, listen to musicians, watch plays and visit guest speakers.
UCM offers many services to assist you in reaching your full potential; essentially, the campus operates like its own community. Need a job or résumé help? The Office of Career Services will assist you. Having trouble studying or coping with the stresses of college? Academic support and counseling are offered on campus. Is your computer crashing? Tech support is a short walk away. Student mothers and fathers have no fear. A child care center is available to watch your child so you can focus on classes. There is even a health center on campus for all your medical needs.
