And that is pretty sweet, right?

Below you will find descriptions of Foster Centers and RSOs (that is, Registered Student Organizations for all of our New Huskies!), along with Zoom links to join their Zoom rooms. Browse the Zoom rooms below and hop into the ones you would like to learn more about! Each Zoom room will have members of the team available to answer any questions and share more information about how you can get involved!
