Opportunities for Engagement

Developing into an individual inspired and guided by purpose doesn't only happen inside the walls of the classroom — it happens by coming face-to-face with new opportunities, people, places, and ideas. From faculty-led trips to historical sites and notable hotspots of present-day strategic importance to student-run clubs and honor societies, networking events, research conferences, and more, the College of Arts & Humanities offers diverse opportunities for meaningful engagement with big questions.
