Events & Experiential Learning

Find the following types of opportunities in our Database:

  • Publications (student journals, essay contests)
  • Experiential Learning (intern/scholar programs, grants)

Tools to increase engagement

Discover Interests

Students can browse a database of opportunities on: University, Local, State, & Regional levels.

Discover Interests

It is hard to get a new student’s attention unless you have information that is relevant to that student’s unique interests. Instead of sending them a wild goose hunt across the internet, it is much more effective to give students specific links to specific events and opportunities they might like. It just takes that 1 event, that 1 experience, or that 1 mentor to spark their interest. Make their job (and yours) easier!

Recommendations

Our algorithm offers suggestions for upcoming events and opportunities based on your profile and activity.

Recommendations

Is your student starting to like her math classes? Send them to the regional AMS meeting. Is your student getting into his computer science classes? Tell them to apply for that Google Internship program. Is the Art club working on animation this year? Send them the link to the Pixar Animation Competition. S.O.C. gives you the resources to turn a student’s general direction into specific actions that will ultimately be the experiences that will be the highlight of their college careers.

Newsletters & Notifications

Students can subscribe to list-serves, across a variety of majors and fields of study.

Newsletters & Notifications

We make it easy to keep students engaged and up to date on what’s happening. Users can sign up for newsletters for specific Majors and Areas of Interest. A biology student will be notified when a biology conference is approaching. A physics major will see a list of intern/scholar programs from the NSF. A creative writing major will be reminded of an upcoming publication deadline.
