  • Have you signed up for Anchor Link yet? It’s a crucial tool for finding student organizations that directly align with things you’re interested in. It can also help leaders engage with members, publicize campus events, promote important news or receive applications for a new organization.

You can also set out to join the Commons Leadership Council to meet others.
