There are tons of ways to get involved at UNO.
Joining organizations that complement your studies or appeal to your personal interests can enrich your college experience. Organizations on campus are created to suit the diverse interests of students that range from sports to academics to art and self-expression and beyond. They are a great way to get involved, make new connections, and share a common interest with your peers.
MavSYNC has pages full of information on each of UNO’s organizations. If you look through the list and don’t see one that appeals to your unique interests, you can create your own. If you are interested in a certain organization or starting your own, head to the Office of Student Activities on the first floor of the MBSC for more information.
MavSYNC is UNO’s official hub for students, faculty, and staff to easily find information on involvement opportunities available to the UNO community.
With information on 150+ student organizations, 20+ campus departments, and various service opportunities in the Omaha community, MavSYNC is a great tool to use when you’re looking to get involved.
As students, you have the ability to track and record your involvement at UNO throughout your entire college experience.
You can also RSVP to events, join organizations, participate in campus-wide polls, vote in Homecoming and Student Government elections, and reflect on your experiences.
Student organizations and departments can also use MavSYNC to communicate internally among members and share information externally with the UNO community.
To access MavSYNC, all you need is an internet connection and your NetID. It’s that easy.
Fraternity & Sorority Life
Fraternity and Sorority Life values academics, philanthropy, and service and is a great way to get involved on campus.
Each chapter is unique in its traditions and members, and they all support UNO. With 19 chapters on campus, there is sure to be a good fit for you.
There are 19 recognized fraternities and sororities at UNO. Each are part of a governing council, which sets specific guidelines and policies for the groups that they govern. These councils are comprised of elected representatives from every organization for the purposes of guidance and unification among their members. There are four such councils on campus.
