Student Engagement

A well-rounded collegiate experience would not be complete without a healthy dose of para-curricular engagement. The area of Student Engagement provides opportunities for students to build communities and engage meaningfully with staff and peers in a wide variety of ways.

The Digital Media Center is a multi-media lab space as well as an equipment, printing, and knowledge resource for students interested in exploring creative uses of emerging media and technology to communicate their ideas.

Two full-time, professional staff members in Fraternity and Sorority Life provide leadership development, risk management training, and general advising to our 20 fraternities and sororities, working with members and stakeholders to lead with integrity, conduct activities in a safe, healthy manner, and make sound academic and personal choices.

Students are encouraged to express themselves creatively by connecting with the Homewood Arts Programs for dance, theater, a cappella, the visual arts, and music.

The coordinator for Orientation and First-Year Experience encourages new Blue Jays to test out their wings during their first-year at Johns Hopkins by participating in programs designed to assist with the transition to college life such as orientation, Family Weekend, dinners with the deans, and the annual High Table dinner.

And finally, students have opportunities to strengthen their leadership abilities through engagement with Student Leadership and Involvement. Whether it’s by participating in one of the hundreds of programs sponsored by one of our four student programming boards, attending a leadership retreat, joining a student club or organization, or by representing their fellow students on the Student Government Association, professional and student staff members in SLI are looking forward to working with students to create community at JHU.
