Clubs and organizations

With more than 250 student activities recognized organizations, we’re sure your University of Rochester connection is based on much more than what was learned in the classroom. The Office of Alumni Relations and Constituent Engagement offers many occasions to unite with fellow alumni or current students centered around organizations, clubs, or athletic teams.

Whether it be supporting an existing club, organizing reunion celebrations, connecting alumni with the current members of their organizations, or assisting in helping students find former members, there’s no reason not to continue these rewarding relationships.

Attention current students! For more information and ideas on how to get connected to alumni and make the most of our support, click here.
