With over 180 student organizations and clubs on campus, it's easy to get involved in the CU extracurriculars. The challenge is...which ones to choose?
To help you decide what activities are best for you, get to the Involvement Fair in mid-September. There will be booths, posters, handouts and freebies galore. You can get the lowdown on lots of activities to find out which ones are best for you. Hey, this is college...try something new...or try something familiar. The point is...get involved and try something!

Freshman Leadership Opportunities
Residence Hall Government
Your Residence Hall community is a great place not only to live, but also to become involved in leadership & governance. The Inter-Residence Hall Government (IRHG), along with each Hall's council are excellent ways to show leadership on our campus. Each residence hall has exciting and active Hall Councils that put on programs, serve the needs of residents and give feedback on critical university issues. Here are just some of the ways you can become involved with your Hall Council!
You can run for an Executive Board position within your Hall. Each hall has a President; a Vice President for Finance and Administration; a Service, Faith, and Justice Ambassador; and a set number of senators according to the number of residents living in the hall. These positions form the Executive Board for each hall, meaning that they run the weekly Hall Council meetings and also attend the IRHG General Assembly meetings. Additionally, each floor has 2 - 4 representatives who attend weekly Hall Council meetings. For more information on IRHG and Residence Hall Councils, call (402) 280-3133 or stop by the IRHG office in Swanson Hall, located to the right of the front desk.
