Student Organizations and Clubs
We highly encourage you to get involved on campus with our various student organizations. Campus involvement provides students with opportunities to grow as leaders, become engaged with other CHE students and the UNC community as well as help in maintaining balance with their academic work load.
CHE believes that one of the best ways to promote your success is to get you involved in positive university-sponsored extra-curricular groups. Aside from the number of clubs and organizations that the university offers, CHE itself has a number of activities to get our students involved on campus.
Club CHE S.O.S. (Students Offering Support)
Club CHE S.O.S. is a student social organization that was started in by an eager bunch of CHE participants. The club members plan to organize and host student related events ranging from presenters, civic engagement, community service, socializing, and barbeques. Stay tune for upcoming meeting and event dates.
If you are looking for ways to get involved during your college experience then check out the S.O.S. Club. The club's mission is to:

Other Extra-Curricular Activities
Occasionally there are events on campus that students have an opportunity to participate in. CHE students also like to volunteer and help out with events on campus. Maya Angelou recently visited UNC, a majority of the students who helped staff this event were CHE student volunteers. Remember to check the UNC Calendar for possible upcoming events and activities.
Here at UNC we take pride in having over 100 clubs available to students. Joining a club is a great way to make friends with common interests. UNC club categories include social, to professional, honorary to academic, cultural, to political, and religious. Being a club member also provides you an opportunity to develop leadership skills that positively benefit your academic record. So don’t wait too long, take a look at UNC's campus-wide Clubs List including an additional listing of Student Organizations. Don't wait too long become a club member and get involved!!
Interested in expanding your learning experience? Then the University Honors Program is for you! This program is made up of a “community of students and scholars engaged in service and social activities.” Students in the Honors Program are provided opportunities to interact with faculty and members of the extended Honors community outside of the classroom.
Juniors and Seniors Thinking Ahead
Many of our CHE students go on to apply for Graduate School in a variety of academic disciplines.
