The Office of Student Engagement and Orientation oversees programming and events, offers a social outlet for students at CCAD while also providing educational and leadership opportunities outside the classroom. This includes new student orientation, student clubs, and organizations, major events on campus such as Family Weekend, Inclusion, new student seminar, sports programs and more.
CCAD has over 15 active student organizations. Attending the Student Engagement Fair at the beginning of each semester is a great way to check out all of the groups and sign up for groups that you are interested in joining. Most groups also have an active Facebook page.
Student organizations are open to anyone that wants to join! Check out the list of student organizations below and just show up! You could also see if the organization you are interested in has a Facebook page and send them a message.
Think you might want to start a student organization? Download the form here. You will need a faculty/staff advisor to sign off on your group and be a resource, as well as at least five other students who you know would like to join your group. Successful groups often start with a strong foundation of student interest and passionate student leaders.

New Student Seminar
CAN I RESERVE A MEETING ROOM OR EVENT SPACE ON CAMPUS?
Only the leaders of a recognized student organization on campus may reserve a meeting room on campus by emailing Maria D'Apolito at email@example.com and request a day, time and place. Meeting rooms must be officially requested and reserved or your group could be removed from the space.
HOW CAN MY STUDENT GROUP RESERVE THE TABLE OUTSIDE OF THE MARKET?
Email Maria D'Apolito with the dates and purpose for the reservation at least two weeks prior to the week you would like to reserve. The table and chairs are located in the DSA lounge closet, you will need to ask the front desk staffer for the key and must break down and return the table and chairs to the closet at the end of each shift.
WHO CAN I TALK TO ABOUT AN IDEA FOR A CAMPUS IMPROVEMENT OR IF I'M UNHAPPY ABOUT SOMETHING AT CCAD?
