Student Organizations and Campus Activities

ETSU’s home for student organizations and campus activities is known as the “SORC.” Short for “Student Organization Resource Center,” the SORC exists to help students get involved on campus! While the office was created to enhance communication, improve collaboration and strengthen student leadership among ETSU’s student organizations, the SORC also works to increase awareness about involvement opportunities and resources available to all ETSU students. Registered student organizations are welcome to use all of the SORC’s services free of charge. To find out more about the SORC, visit, call (423) 439-6633 or drop by the offices located on the first floor of the D.P. Culp University Center.
