Information for Students
Community impact is an integral part of university life at Drexel. The University encourages all students to take part in local to global service opportunities and social responsibility initiatives. Our goal is for each student to recognize the benefits of public service to their education, their career, and to society.
Drexel focuses on providing experiences that show each Drexel student that the ideals of social responsibility can be integrated into their careers. To help achieve this goal, all undergraduate students complete a first-year civic engagement project, and many continue to participate in civic engagement opportunities throughout their time at Drexel.
Students are also encouraged to explore the numerous recognized student organizations centered on community service and social action initiatives. These organizations are truly student-led and exist to serve local, national, and international communities. In order to access our online student organization database, CollegiateLink, students should log-in to DrexelOne. Upon doing so, click the “Drexel” tab and on the bottom-left, click the hyperlink for CollegiateLink. This sequence will log students in to CollegiateLink, where they will notice a virtual bulletin board of student events and by clicking “Organizations,” will have full access to the over 300 recognized student groups.
Students can search the directory alphabetically, by entering a keyword, or through a variety of categories like “Community Service/Social Action”. Students who have questions or would like additional information should contact the Office of Campus Activities (OCA) at or by visiting the office on the lower level of the Creese Student Center in the Student Organization Resource Center (SORC).
