How We Help Students Do Something Bigger Altogether
We encourage students to create meaningful relationships, explore interests and develop a sense of self and an appreciation for their community. Our student organizations promote leadership development, critical thinking and interpersonal skills.
We promote involvement and engagement by educating students to create a vibrant campus life at UNCG.
The Activity Fee icon helps publicize our event’s accessibility through the use of Student Fee funding. The majority of activities and events planned by the CAP office are paid for by the Student Activity fee. Come on out, join the fun, and see how your Activity Fee is being used!
Family Friendly Events
Another icon to look for is our Family Friendly event rating. We encourage students to bring children, spouses, life partners, and friends to events with these icons. There are three categories based on entertainment and location (at the discretion of the CAP staff): 18 years and older, 13 years and older, and all ages.
