Find Involvement Opportunities Through Virtual Tabling

While this may not be the same as walking table to table on a beautiful afternoon at the Bell Tower, we hope this virtual experience will help you find resources, opportunities, and organizations to enjoy while you’re at UCR.

We recommend everyone begin by completing the Involvement Calculator, a survey where you can input your major, hobbies, demographic information, and more so that one of our experienced advisers can create a list of personalized involvement recommendations for you. It may take up to a week to get a response but this will help narrow our more than 500 opportunities down to a much more manageable dozen or so. The more information you give us, the better! To learn more about using the Involvement Calculator, check out this handy video.

If you’d like an overview of why you should get involved at UCR, including a discussion on hazing prevention measures and time measurement tips, please reference this online workshop for both students and families

You can find a complete list of organizations on HighlanderLink but these profiles are not nearly as engaging as the virtual tabling you’ll find below. If a group doesn’t have a video, that doesn’t mean it isn’t active, there are many reasons why they might have not submitted a video.

Now, feel free to browse our virtual tabling selection below, sorted into categories for your ease. There are whole videos you can reference by category or use the timestamp links to jump to a specific department or organization.

Campus

Campus Departments

Campus departments are university entities that are coordinated by professional staff and likely student staff. These might be services that students can access, departments that provide events and programs, or auxiliary units that sell products on the UCR campus that students may need or want.

 

 

Arts

Arts & Expression Organizations

Whether it be dance, art, music, or any other form of performance or publication, this category hosts all sorts of organizations that allow you to express yourself in a variety of mediums. 

 


 

Fraternities and Sororities

Fraternities and Sororities

These organizations are categorized into four different councils — Collaborative Multicultural Council (CMC), Interfraternity Council (IFC), College Panhellenic Association (CPA), and National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC). Some are primarily social in nature, but we also have organizations with cultural roots as well. Remember that using Greek letters doesn’t always indicate a fraternity or sorority, it could be an Academic/Professional group, Honor Society, or even Community Service organization.

Spiritual & Religious Organizations

No matter the belief set, it’s likely that we have at least one organization at UCR for that student population. These groups may be connected to local houses of worship or may be entirely student-run. 

Academic tabling

Academic/Professional Organizations

Student organizations at UCR are primarily focused on academics, which is why the largest category of club is our academic or pre-professional clubs. A student should undoubtedly try to find an organization aligned with their major or career path. This category also includes many professional fraternities and sororities, which are co-ed and driven by majors and career paths.

Honor

Honor Societies

Membership in these organizations is typically driven by a GPA requirement and orgs are often dedicated to a certain field of study. In addition to GPA requirements, there may be class requirements and often memberships dues to consider.

Starting a New Organization

If you can’t find anything up your alley in this list of student groups, it’s incredibly easy to register new organizations. We just ask that we try not to duplicate groups, so reference HighlanderLink  before setting up a meeting. Once you’re ready, we register new organizations during the first five weeks in the fall quarter and the first five weeks in the winter quarter. You don’t need to meet any prerequisites but contact the Student Life office at ucrlife@ucr.edu and give us an idea what type of club you’d like to start and we’ll arrange a meeting with the proper student organization adviser that can help make your dream a reality. You will eventually need five members total to register, either undergrads or graduates, and the student organization adviser will help you complete all the necessary paperwork and documents you’ll need.

Once registered, new organizations will get access to funding from the university, space to hold meetings, and all sorts of other perks and benefits. Your dedicated adviser will help explain all of these benefits to you.
