STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND LEADERSHIP
Drexel encourages students to become involved on campus and join a student organization where you can further develop your leadership skills, develop new friendships, and challenge yourself to explore new ideas and activities. Below are a few recommendations for how you can become a member of a student organization at Drexel.
Fraternity and Sorority Life
Fraternities and sororities exist as a proven support network for students embarking on this new period in life. Close to one million undergraduate students across the country are fraternity or sorority members. There are currently over 900 men and women in the Drexel fraternity and sorority community, which consists of thirteen fraternities and eleven sororities.
The Campus Activities Board (CAB) is a student-run event programming organization at Drexel University. Its purpose is to plan and execute a variety of successful events, reflective of the diverse interests and needs of the student body. CAB offers a ton of discounted tickets to the Drexel community for events like concerts, comedy shows, theater events and more!

Leadership Development and Traditions
Student Leadership Development & Traditions [SLDT] provides a variety of student leadership opportunities, upholds and develops campus traditions, and fosters engagement in alumni and community development initiatives at Drexel University. Programming, services, and resources for effective student leadership development and life transitions are delivered through the “Creating Experiential Opportunities for Leadership Education and Development” [CEO LEAD] and “Drexel Senior Experience” [DSE] programs.
Commuter Assistant or Transfer Assistant
Commuter Assistants (CA) and Transfer Assistants (TA) are essential to developing community for Drexel’s commuter and transfer student populations. CAs and TAs serve as peer mentors to freshmen commuter and first year transfer students. As mentors they help new students navigate the Drexel campus culture and connect them to important resources.
Drexel Orientation Leaders play a vital role in acclimating new students to the Drexel community. During the summer employment, Orientation Leaders gain leadership skills, are given the opportunity to meet a whole new group of people, and get a behind-the-scenes look at their University by becoming familiar with places and faces around campus. It is one of the most enriching experiences a Drexel Dragon can have!
The RA is critical to developing a community that fosters learning and development within the residence halls. They maintain contact with residents and serve as a contact-person for any students facing difficulty during their stay in any campus residence hall.
