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) can help you optimize involvement experiences and design your own college experience. With program offerings such as Program Pals, 1:1 coaching sessions, and Relationship Reboot, CLCs are ready to help you make the most of your time at EMU. 

We can help you with:

  • Acclimating to EMU
  • Making connections
  • Finding supportive communities
  • Designing your college experience
  • Building your resume
  • Developing life skills 

Meet with a CLC

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?
