What are the most popular student activities/groups?


UNI has many student organizations that appeal to a diverse population of students. There are many service related organizations, which I believe seem to be very popular. For example, one group has "Volunteer Tuesdays" in which every Tuesday of the month students volunteer somewhere in the community. These events seem to be so popular that they often fill spots a month before. One of my favorite groups that I have been involved in is Colleges Against Cancer, which plans Relay for Life. It was a very positive experience that allowed students to show their passions. Many students also attend athletic events, especially since they are free for UNI students, which is rare. Athletic events have such a great atmosphere and sense of team spirit. I have meet my closest friends in my dorm my freshman year. The dorms have a great sense of community and allow you to meet many people. They usually have many activities for students to get involved in both during the week and on the weekends.
