Spring 2024 Affinity Group Expo Kicks off the New Semester

The Community Catalyst Center kicked off its Spring 2024 programming with an Affinity Group Expo, hosted in the L-building lobby on Wednesday, Jan. 24.

The expo gave students a chance to meet with several C3 peer mentors, learn more about C3’s resources and seven affinity groups, sign up for upcoming events and pick up some swag and a snack.

This semester, C3 is excited to host several events relating to academic wellbeing; professional development; community building; campus diversity, equity and inclusion and more. Check out our next two events below.
