SOMeCA: Engage Your Future

Play buttonYouTube video thumbnail

This is a moment of opportunity. UCSC is offering unique Registered Student Organizations in which students can engage as leaders, tackle real life issues, and master the skills needed in the classroom and in their careers.

SOMeCA programs are designed for active, experiential learning. We offer trainings, mentorship, and a network of alumni in all fields. Through the Student Agency Model, we have built a community of over 200 dynamic organizations in which students can gain the knowledge and experience that employers and national leaders are looking for, such as critical thinking, applied knowledge in real-world settings, ethical decision making, complex problem solving, and intercultural competence.

Join in the SOMeCA community and engage your future! Check out a SOMeCA organization or event or visit us at any of our offices.
