Your UCM experience also includes substantial opportunities for co-curricular and extracurricular involvement, such as internships with leading companies and organizations, study abroad and international study tour experiences, Fraternity and Sorority Life, discipline-based student organizations, theatre productions, orchestra and choir concerts, and Mules and Jennies athletic events, where our student athletes have collectively won numerous national championships in Division II.  

Our commitment to you includes many initiatives designed to enhance your post-UCM success, whether through cutting-edge academic programs which ensure career-readiness, service-learning projects, the Undergraduate Research Symposium in which students present research findings in collaboration with faculty, participation in regional and national academic competitions, or the Career Expo and other career preparatory services offered through the Office of Career Services.  We know you will also enjoy being part of a diverse campus setting that introduces you to people, cultures and experiences that make you better prepared to serve in a global society – all part of our promise to provide an educational environment where you can experience learning to a greater degree.
