Jaguar Connection

GSU Jaguar

The Jaguar Connection is a long-awaited tool that features student clubs, organizations, and events.  It's a place where students can start or join an organization, or make plans to attend an event.  Club leaders can gather contact information, share event dates, and post-election processes for all clubs and organizations. The site also makes it easy for clubs to communication with each other.
