CETA students are active in the University, participating in all the clubs and organizations on campus as well as other facets of life here. With more than 100 clubs and organizations to choose from, not to mention work possibilities, undergraduate publication and research opportunities, concerts (rock and classical), plays, operas, and other performances, and athletics, every student can have an active life to complement the academic side of things. And if you can't find a group that covers something you're interested in the SGA (Student Government Association) makes it easier for you to start one.
The University of Hartford offers clubs that support academics like the literary annual produced by the English Department, Aerie, and our own American Society of Mechanical Engineers. But students can also participate in clubs like the Science Fiction Society, which sponsors a convention on campus or in Hartford. If you're more interested in volunteering, several organizations will help you, for example, Educational Main Street, which arranges for University students to tutor Hartford children, or Habitat for Humanity. University-wide clubs and organizations
If journalism or disc jockeying appeals to you, the University offers three main outlets: Channel 2 News, The Informer (student newspaper), and WSAM (student-operated am radio station). Many students also work at WWUH, the FM radio station here on campus.
In addition to an active chapter of the Newman Club and Hillel, there are other organizations to help you maintain your ties to your culture and your faith, for example, Casa, the Caribbean-American student association, and Ekta, the Indian student association, as well as the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and the University of Hartford Unitarian-Universalists. The International Center in Gengras Student Union supports the various international groups here on campus.
About 15% of the University's student body belongs to a fraternity or a sorority here. The Greek organizations here on campus actively work on charities, so you might want to consider one of them.
In addition to the various Division I teams like basketball, golf, and tennis, that both men and women play on here, the University offers a wide variety of opportunities for students to participate with club sports such as men's rugby, women's rugby, roller-hockey, even a dance team. In addition, the Sport's Center is a 130,000-square-foot facility offering an Olympic-sized swimming pool, strength and conditioning equipment, and squash and racquetball courts, not to mention lighted tennis courts on our new outdoor facilities.
