Now more than ever, we know students are looking for connection, and we want to help! We are thrilled to be launching Engagement Pods – programming with a connection. These pods will be an opportunity for students to safely gather in person to build community, explore their interests, and connect with UA. Whether it is meeting to discuss your favorite books or movies, a weekly coffee chat, leadership development, or cooking – we want to help create and match you with a pod that’s right for you!
