Find Your Fit

There are endless opportunities in college to get involved and we know that can be a little overwhelming sometimes. It can be difficult to jump in when you aren't even sure where to start. We can help with that!

Campus Life Coaches

Campus Life Coaches (or CLCs) are here to help you optimize your time outside the classroom and make the most out of your EMU experience!

    Meet with Hannah! 

    Hannha has availability on Mondays and Tuesdays, click her name above to schedule a meeting!

    Here's what she has to say about her approach to serving students: I am so excited to begin this journey of peer engagement and campus involvement where my goal is to get students connected. Whether that be through events, clubs or student orgs; I’m here, a part of a team that can guide you through it all. I am currently finishing up my Bachelors Degree in Social Work at Eastern which has given me tons of experience with counseling and providing resources that will result in community building. My hope is that as a coach I am able to empower students in expressing themselves authentically while discovering new interests that someone may have never had the opportunity to try before. I will always meet you with kindness and a willingness to understand new perspectives as long as you are willing to introduce me to them. Hope to get connected soon!

    Meet with Jasmine! 

    Jasmine has availability on Tuesdays and Thursdays, click her name above to schedule a meeting! 

    Here's what she has to say about her approach to serving students: I became a CLC because I wanted to become more involved in my Eastern community! As this will be my first year as a CLC, I want to become a coach others can rely on. I want to attract students who may feel intimidated about joining clubs and attending events so that I can let them know that they are not alone. My coaching style is typically working backstage supporting students, letting them know that they are valuable and have a voice, regardless of their status in life. I am excited to encourage students to discover what their interests are, who they want to interact with, and what they wish to gain from getting involved on campus! I want to grow alongside the students I help in my position and see how far we both have come at the end of each semester! A fun fact about me is that I’m on episode 1,003 in the hit anime series One Piece. I look forward to meeting everyone!

    Meet with Nakari

    Nakari has availability on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, click his name above to schedule a meeting! 

    Here's what he has to say about his approach to serving students: I am so excited to be in this position and being able to help you all this year. I became a CLC because I know how getting involved on campus and joining organizations benefitted me and helped me grow into the person I am today and I want to be able to share my knowledge and experiences to you all and help you guys accomplish goals and reach new heights within our campus community. My coaching style is "Nurturer" meaninig I am going to attend to your emotional needs and aspects and also make sure that I am attending to your overall well being and building relationships with you all. My overall goal is to help everyone who comes through our office find the perfect fit for them and to expose them to campus and all that we have to offer!

Student Organizations

If you'd like support finding the right student organization for you, check out EMU's Recognized Student Organizations on EagleSync, or reach out to us at [email protected] for an individual consultation. 

Fraternities & Sororities

For some students the experience in fraternity or sorority life is where they find community at EMU. You can learn more on our Fraternity & Sorority Life page or, if you have questions about getting involved in FSL you can emails us at [email protected].

Student Activities

If you're looking for a low-commitment option or just want to get out and meet people, attending campus events and activities are a great way to do just that. Check out the University Calendar, the "What's Happening" tile in the EMU Engage App, and follow Campus Life and other campus departments on social media to stay informed about upcoming campus events. In the call check out Family Weekend and Homecoming events!


One way to find your fit is by attending EMU Connect and getting to know campus and other new students over the course of the weekend. After your first year you also have the option of volunteering to be a Connect Group Leader which will not only provide you leadership training and experience but also an opportunity to build your campus network and support new students as they begin building theirs. If you are interested in learning more about opportunities to volunteer or work in the Orientation office, emails us at [email protected] today!

Student Employment

On campus jobs are a fantastic way to deepen your connection to campus, make some money, and work in a flexible environment with supervisors that support your development and education. Campus Life hires student assistants for our Engagement & Activities team, Orgs Support Team, Fraternity & Sorority Life team, Orientation & Transition Programs Team, and Marketing & Design team. You can also find great opportunities for campus employment in many other EMU departments. Not sure where to start?
