Now more than ever, we know students are looking for connection, and we want to help! Engagement Pods were launched in fall 2020 as an opportunity for students to safely gather in person to build community, explore their interests, and connect with UA. We are thrilled to continue this program for spring 2021. 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!
