Group Services:

Sometimes we need the support of others to help us get through our current situations. At Viterbo, we work on developing student specific groups to address the needs of the campus community from traditional to non-traditional students. Below you will find a listing of not only campus provided groups, but groups that are provided by local organizations free to students. This listing does not have all programs but gives a person a place to start in finding the support and help they need to work on becoming a healthier, well rounded individual.
