Student Clubs and Greek Life
Experience. Participate. Lead.
The Student Clubs and Greek Life Office (SCGL) supports the UAA community by empowering student involvement. We work to develop equal and diverse communities, interactive networks, collaboration, leadership skills, and personal, social, and intellectual experiences. We believe these opportunities enhance the learning environment on campus and help students obtain valuable lifelong skills.
Experience. Participate. Lead is our model for student involvement. It is based on the belief that when students experience community involvement they will participate and develop leadership skills.
The Student Clubs & Greek Life office provides financial and planning support for all registered clubs at UAA. We register clubs, provide bookkeeping services and guidance for starting new clubs and club travel.
