#AloneTogether with the Student Centers

The Student Centers team misses building community with you in our venues; but just because we’re not in the same physical space doesn’t mean that we can’t still create community together! We are curating a list of ways that we can continue to share in a community by being #AloneTogether while everyone practices self-isolation and social distancing in line with current public health recommendations. So sit back, #StayHome, and check out our growing network of ways to stay connected with the UChicago campus community and beyond! We look forward to welcoming you back into the Student Centers soon!

We will keep this page updated as new opportunities to build community virtually come up!

RSO Activities

On the morning of April 6, 2020, the Center for Leadership and Involvement announced that RSOs can apply to use some of their funding to do approved events virtually! As events are approved, the Student Centers will list them here so you can still connect with your peers virtually and support the RSO community! This section will be updated in real-time as we receive information.

If your RSO has had an approved activity funded and you’d like us to promote it here, please email Derek Bundy at with a title for your event, 1-2 sentence description, a date/time for your activity, and a link to where we should cross-promote!
