Get involved

We believe that students are powerful and have the capacity to make change happen as active citizens. Review the various ways that you can get involved and take ownership of your individual and collective power.

Census 2020

The U.S. Census is the official method for counting the U.S. population. The census occurs every 10 years and is mandated by the U.S. Constitution. College students will be counted in the communities where they go to school and live the majority of the year. Most college students need to be counted at their college address, either on campus or off campus. They should be counted at their parents’ home only if they live and sleep at that location most of the year.
