In collaboration with internal and external partners, the Office of Student Engagement (OSE) encourages student learning and engagement through diverse activities designed to help all students realize their full potential. The OSE promotes student growth and development by providing opportunities for student organization and leadership development, participation in campus governance, social and cultural development, and advocacy.
We're currently available for a blend of in-person and remote services. Check out the Student Services page for our current in-person hours. We have modified delivery of many of our programs and services to support social distancing and to remain compliant with state directives to protect public health and safety. We are also implementing new opportunities for staying connected.
Student engagement is the vibrant hub for involvement, connection and service to the Riverhawk community. In our office, we strive to positively impact the learning and development of all Riverhawks through co-curricular programs and services to empower personal and professional success. Our values, which are consistent with those of AACC, include:
Student Engagement is a distribution partner of the Maryland Food Bank. AACC pantries, created in partnership with the Maryland Food Bank, provide food to individuals and families in our community.
AACC's pantries have reopened for in-person visits! To maintain safety, we will offer appointments and prioritize serving those who make an appointment in advance. We follow the college's COVID-19 procedures.
Sign up for a pantry visit appointment by filling out our AACC HelpLink appointment form.

If you have questions about food pantry services, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are experiencing unforeseen financial circumstances, you may request support from the HelpLink program. HelpLink awards are designed to offer short-term support to currently enrolled students who are at risk of being unable to complete their educational goals at AACC due to sudden or unexpected financial barriers, including those resulting from COVID-19 disruptions. Learn more about the HelpLink program.
Complete your HelpLink application.
HelpLink funds are provided in the form of direct and specific assistance. HelpLink awards will be mailed/shipped directly to students, and/or processed online to honor social distancing practices.

Are you a student club member in need of a flyer or some cards for your event? Not sure where to get started? Student Engagement can help! Our office will help clubs design and print advertisements. If your club needs something designed and/or printed for an event, simply fill out the Graphics Request Form on the Nest. Once it is designed and approved, it will be sent for printing and delivered to the desired location! To request advertising of your virtual event on Student Engagement's social media, email email@example.com.
All graphics requests (digital and print) for in-person events and activities are suspended until further notice. You may request digital graphics (e.g. PDFs, images for social media posts, other pictures), for your upcoming virtual program or event. We are unable to accept print requests for virtual programs or events. If you are unsure whether your request is applicable, email Student Engagement with your question at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not sure about the process? We have guides available on the Nest!
In general, make requests at least five business days in advance of the event.
