Array Of Orgs Add To College Experience

The collegiate experience is more than just classes, labs, and research. A key aspect of college life is community, with clubs, fraternities, sororities, and other student organizations offering individuals of different backgrounds the opportunity to get together. The University of Toledo is no exception, with the school proudly boasting more than 400 active clubs and organizations.

For both new and established students looking to become more involved on campus, the Involvement Network, commonly referred to as Invonet, is a handy portal to campus organizations. Invonet is a UToledo website campus organizations use to promote events and recruit new members.

The main page list all the events being offered on campus in the near future while a sub-menu titled “Organizations” allows students to scroll and sort through all available campus organizations.

UToledo organizations offer loads of services to students, and those services are the main draw for many of them. The International Student Association which manages many of of the school’s cultural organizations. For those students looking to go Greek, fraternity and sorority rush events are held throughout the year. There are also many other common interest groups active on campus, from the Hot Chocolate Club to BASH, just about anything to fit your niche. Looking for something more administrative? Organizations like Campus Activities and Programming or Student Government allow students to make change across campus.

With more than 400 groups across campus, one would hope there is a place for everyone, but if there isn’t, the University has a streamlined process for starting a new student organization. Each year, from Sept. 1 to Oct. 31 and again from Jan. 1 to June 1, any student in good standing, along with six of their friends can create their own student organization. To get started, you need to come up with a unique organization that isn’t active on campus. Two of your members need to be trained as President and Treasurer. You will also have to submit your organization’s mission statement and constitution to Invonet.

For more information on how you can get involved on campus, visit the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership, on first floor of the Student Union around the corner from Frogtown Cafe and across from the Student Lounge/Game Room.
