Welcome to the Office of Campus Activities!
The Office of Campus Activities (OCA) provides opportunities for meaningful co-curricular engagement that develop self-awareness, interpersonal skills, and citizenship, that connect with and to academic, co-op, and professional experiences.
We accomplish our mission through championing over 300 student-run organizations, providing support for event planning, financial management, and leadership development; coordinating meaningful service trips during spring break; through general advisement of student leaders; and by facilitating opportunities for students to engage outside the classroom. The OCA team consists of dedicated professionals committed to the growth and development of Drexel students.
Through getting involved, we believe students learn new skills, build diverse networks and friendships, add valuable experiences to their resumes, maintain a positive connection to Drexel University, and have fun!
What students learn through engagement is transferable to academic, co-op, and professional settings. We invite you take advantage of numerous opportunities offered at Drexel that will impact your life, as well as the lives of your peers, Drexel University, the local community, and our world. We look forward to collaborating with you through your evolving, lifelong leadership journey.
