Welcome Back Festivities 2021 Calendar
Welcome Back Bobcats! The Office of Student Involvement missed you! Are you ready for the academic school year? Before we open the books and laptops, come by and check out all of our events for August 2021 and September 2021! 
Campus Activities Board (CAB)
The Campus Activities Board (CAB) was created to provide a variety of entertainment, co-curricular programming, and social activities for the student body at UC Merced in order to create a social network and community that will enhance the development of character and scholarship amongst students.
Fraternity and Sorority Life
UC Merced provides a wide range of academic, social and community service activities. Fraternity or sorority membership is a good first step toward enjoying all the benefits college life has to offer. A fraternity/sorority is also a way to make the campus feel more like a home.
Registered Clubs and Organizations
There is always a place for you here at UC Merced. With over 200 clubs and organizations, you will always find your home away from home; from events that vary from concerts, lectures, special events, cultural and social events and conferences. 
Welcome to OSI
Welcome to the Office of Student Involvement! We are committed to building a sense of belonging and school spirit by helping students explore ways to get involved on campus.

Office of Student Involvement (OSI)

We are here to encourage involvement in campus life, support student initiatives and serve as a primary liaison for students. Education happens both inside and outside the classroom and a successful college career includes social as well as intellectual development. Invest in your own success by getting involved!
