It also allows the Office of Leadership and Student Involvement to post important information to the campus about getting involved and to keep student leaders informed about upcoming events and relevant information to their student organizations, such as budgets, travel, and university events. There are also specific newsletters for service, leadership, and Fraternity and Sorority Life. Click on each tab to find out how to sign up for each one.
