About Student Life
Each year the Office of Student Life leads and facilitates cultural, recreational, and social celebrations, ceremonies, and events for the University community. We collaborate with students and faculty in the implementation of programs and activities that support students’ personal and professional development, while expanding their learning experiences.
There are over 70 active student organizations here at UTMB. Most are professional- and discipline-specific. Others are cultural, religious, social, or special interest. Each year these organizations continue UTMB’s tradition of service, civic engagement, and cultural opportunities by organizing hundreds of projects for the campus and the Galveston community.
