Student Groups and Resources

Student Groups are an important part of our campus community. At Campus Activities and Programs, we strive to advice and support our over 250 student groups. We do this through focusing on: Leadership, Scholarship, Service, and Community. Learn more about how to get involved!

CAP Student Group Pillars of Excellence

  • Leadership: Student groups are breeding grounds for leaders. CAP believes that leadership skills acquired should be used to not only better oneself, but better their peers. Student groups who excel in the leadership pillar use their platform to lead fellow Spartans, contain leaders who move their group forward, and regularly engage in leader development.
  • Service: CAP strives to ensure those within student groups are developing as “active citizens” or someone who engages within their community. Student groups who excel in this pillar actively engage within the Guilford County and Greensboro community, seek opportunities to serve alongside community members, and provide opportunities to explore their values, passions, and interests.

  • Scholarship: Co-curricular involvement compliments a strong academic career. It is proven that involvement in activities outside of the classroom helps students do better academically. Student groups who excel in this pillar are successful in the classroom and actively support their peers and greater community in the area of academic success.

  • Community: Collaboration is an important skill that all successful student groups must have. Working alongside peers to create meaningful experiences provides vibrancy to our entire campus community. Student groups who excel in this pillar often collaborate on events and seek to support other groups.
