Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the time commitment?

This varies on how involved you want to be. General members typically spend about 1 hour a week. Leadership positions add a significant amount of time.

Each project meets at different times during the week. There are optional work meetings, team socials, campus events, and fundraisers.


Get as involved as you can. The more work and effort you put in, the more you will get out of the experience.
