Get Involved

Watching a game is never as much fun as playing it yourself. College is the same way. It's time to get off of the sidelines and into the action. Get involved at UCM and make this the best time of your life.

Join the Crowd

Clubs and Organizations
From rugby teams to the Modern Languages Club, UCM has a club or organization that will appeal to you. If there's one missing from the more than 220 organizations available, you can start your own. By joining a club, you will develop a new social network and take leadership positions in academia, special interests, culture, art, science or public service.

Greek Life
Members of UCM's Greek community are active on campus and in the community. Greeks represent about 10 percent of the student body, but their impact is widespread. Join one of our 11 sororities or 12 fraternities and become actively involved in community service, social events and academic excellence.

Go to a Game

Whether you're an athlete or a fan, athletics at UCM are an important part of student life. UCM has 17 men's and women's teams and competes in NCAA Division II as a member of the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association. Known as the Mules and Jennies, our teams have strong winning traditions at the conference, regional and national levels.

Intramural Sports
Thousands of students participate in intramural sports each year, with levels of competition ranging from competitive to pure recreation. Intramural facilities include:

  • Lighted fields for softball and flag football.
  • Outdoor tennis courts.
  • Union Bowling Center and Digital Gaming Center.
  • Keth Memorial Golf Course at Pertle Springs.
  • Multipurpose Building for racquetball, basketball, jogging, swimming and weight lifting.
  • Student Recreation and Wellness Center with every kind of workout equipment you can think of, including a running track, basketball courts, rock-climbing wall and more.

Excel Academically

Learning Communities
A great way to pursue a special interest or theme, learning communities consist of small groups of 20-25 students. In a learning community, you will take two to four courses that are proven to enhance your academic success.

Learning Commons
UCM's Learning Commons provides a comprehensive array of programs, resources and services to guide you through academic challenges that may arise from time to time. In collaboration with academic departments across campus, SSC is the central location for tutoring at UCM. The center, located on the third floor of the James C. Kirkpatrick Library, houses tutoring and assistance for all academic disciplines. The center is free and open to any UCM student.
