Extracurricular Activities

Student Organizations

The following are undergraduate student organizations at the University of Rochester that are related to business.


Alpha Kappa Psi

The Psi Mu Chapter of Alpha Kappa Psi is an all-gender professional fraternity. We believe in pursuing our passions and supporting each other in everything we do. Our chapter provides members with the opportunity to develop a professional network and sharpen skills applicable to a successful career in any field. Our members have diverse interests and passions and come from all years and majors. We also are not all business all of the time! Our members participate in a variety of community service projects throughout the semester and enjoy social activities, whether it's a lake retreat in Ithaca or just hanging out on a Friday night. Every semester we hold educational and networking events with alumni, professors, and professional leaders in a variety of fields–from finance to medicine to entrepreneurship. We also partner with the Simon Business School to hold workshops and events.


Forté Campus

Forté Campus at Rochester is the second chapter of a nationally recognized organization called the Forté Foundation. This club aims at creating a strong and supportive network of driven and ambitious undergraduate Rochester students, interested in supporting women as they expand their business and leadership skills through education, mentorship, and networking resources. The Forté Foundation is a non-profit consortium of leading companies and top business schools working together to launch women into fulfilling, significant careers through access to business education, opportunities, and a community of successful women.


Undergraduate Finance and Economics Council

The goal of FEC is to foster a friendly environment where students interested in Economics and Finance can network with each other and learn about great career opportunities. We aim to better connect the students to the faculty, the University of Rochester alumni, and the professionals outside of the University. Through events with professionals, closer interaction with the economics department faculty, networking events, and other programs, FEC provides a forum for students of any specialty interested in Economics, Business, and Finance.
 


Meliora Launch Pad

Meliora LaunchPad builds a community of individuals who strive to initiate innovative ideas, share the experiences of entrepreneurship, and inspire others to do the same. We provide a platform where students are motivated to explore the prospects of entrepreneurship in their own field. Through networking and educational opportunities, we will raise campus awareness, foster a network of entrepreneurs, and connect students with valuable resources and opportunities. We aim to nurture students to problem solve with an entrepreneurial and initiative-taking mindset.
