What can the UC do for your Student Organization?

As we’re nearing the end of semester, it seems that sleep (one of my favorite activities) is becoming more and more non-existent. After all, there’s classes, homework, working different on- and off-campus jobs, and of course, keeping track of those student organizations and other involvements.
