Welcome to IGNITE.
We’re your student union on campus that’s here to take your school experience to the next level.
For instance, we understand that going to school is a full-time job and can be extremely stressful. That’s why we provide dozens of different services, programs, and events to help calm your nerves and open you up to new opportunities.
Apply for emergency funding to help pay the bills, use our Sleep lounge so you can catch up on your beauty sleep, and chow down on a handcrafted lunch at our pay-what-you-can Soupbar. By choosing IGNITE, you’re choosing to make YOUR student life more affordable and enjoyable.
