Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) at UC Santa Cruz offer unique opportunities to practice leadership, teambuilding, communication, goal setting, and self-discovery.
Student Organization Advising & Resources (SOAR) provides many resources available to student organizations. Please visit our Leadership Resources for more information on leading your organization.
This Summer the University began a Seismic Retrofit Project to update the Student Union and Redwood Building. The buildings will be closed for the 2015-16 academic school year during these updates.
The SOAR Office has been relocated to Cowell Apartment 2, Room 101
