Many academic departments have academically-related organizations, discipline –based honorary societies, and a student departmental association. Students from each departmental association work together on a college student council for each of the seven colleges. These groups promote interaction between faculty and students, and sponsor speakers, seminars, social gatherings and other activities. Staff from Student Life and Development play a key role in coordinating major events sponsored by these groups.
