Student Clubs and Organizations
At the University of Hartford, it's easy to get to know others who share your interests. All you have to do is get involved in one of the nearly 100 clubs and organizations on campus. Join the staff of The Informer, the student-run newspaper, check out one of the school's many academic clubs, there's also a Ski Club, an Outing Club that organizes hiking, skiing, and tubing trips in New England, and even a Science Fiction Society that sponsors sci-fi movie marathons and special sci-fi events. Whatever your interest, there's likely a group on campus that has already been formed to explore it!
