LIFE AS A GOLDEN EAGLE
Your college experience goes beyond the classroom. The time you spend in class will earn you a degree, but what you do between classes will shape your entire college experience. Our welcoming campus offers endless opportunities to eat, sleep and play, but the real value isn’t in the sunny open spaces or newly renovated facilities. It’s in the strong sense of community that develops when our students live together, work together and ground themselves in UMC tradition.
Clubs and Organizations
Each of our student organizations is tailored to the interests of our students. Not only does UMC have approximately 40 groups for you to join, but every academic area has a correlating organization, making it easy to meet other students with your same interest while adding to your education.
