Life on Campus

Student Involvement

At UMass Boston we encourage all students to engage, explore, and excel. There are tremendous opportunities to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities on campus and in the community.

Through the Office of Student Activities and Leadership, you can become involved in a number of clubs and groups, activities, and events, based upon your interests and passion. Join a club or lead as student government president. Share stories and provide support to students with similar backgrounds or experiences. Plan events, attend a concert, or go on a ski trip. Write articles for the campus newspaper, edit the literary journal, or take photographs for the yearbook. Celebrate your spiritual or religious traditions through the Interfaith Campus Ministry. There are so many ways in which you can become actively engaged in the life of the campus!

If you are committed to service learning and other volunteer experiences, the Office of Student Leadership and Community Engagement (OSCLE) offers many life-changing opportunities for students to share their time and skills by assisting others. Some of our students have helped clean up the oil spill in Florida, built houses for Habitat for Humanity, or worked with communities in the Dominican Republic and Jamaica during Spring Break. Others have been actively involved with our local communities and organizations working with preschoolers or coordinating food drives. If you are interested in discovering and developing your leadership potential, OSCLE has several programs and activities designed for you.

We invite you to explore the opportunities for learning outside of the classroom. We believe that the more actively involved you become, the richer and more fulfilling your college experiences will be at UMass Boston.

Open the door to possibilities!
