"There's so much going on," says senior Scott Duncan. "HornsLink is an all-encompassing university-wide network to inform me of things related to my interests.
Hornslink is the new online campus hub where more than 1,100 student organizations come together to post events, share news and connect with members. The site also recommends events or organizations a student might enjoy based on their customizable interest inventory. Whatever you're into, it's now easy to find and connect with groups on the 40 Acres who enjoy the same things.
"Getting involved outside of the classroom is key for students to get the most out of their college experience," says Dean of Students Soncia Reagins-Lilly. "HornsLink makes it easy for them to discover more on campus, do more with the four years they have here and focus more on what really interests them."
Student Government President Horacio Villarreal calls it "a game changer in how registered student organizations go about their business."
The key is engagement not just how student organizations engage with their members but how students engage with the campus community.
"After getting involved the second semester on campus, I completely evolved my college life," says junior Connor Hughes. "Making friends and joining organizations made me realize that college is just as much about the intangible social experiences as the grades and books."
Curious what's happening this week at RecSports or what's in store from Campus Events + Entertainment? University departments are also using HornsLink to share information and connect with students.
Streamlining all the information about what's happening on campus into one user-friendly resource means students only have to go to one place to take control of their college experience.
