Thriving community

Unbound students aren’t merely classmates. They’re co-adventurers. They’re the people you’ll start a business with, get hired by, or want to hire when you’re the boss. They build organizations, volunteer, work, and form lifelong relationships. They’re truly Unbound.

Connect at in-person events

Not everything is better online. Students need to build networks to find the best opportunities after college. Unbound has you covered.

National Convention

Every year, students gather from all over the country to attend APEX, Unbound’s national convention. They spend 5 days listening to incredible speakers, attending workshops, getting inspired, and developing lasting relationships with one another.

Regional Events

These community events encourage face-to-face student interactions and focus on specific interests like business, art, leadership, and more!

You get to decide how to make the most of your experience and how many events you’d like to attend.

Community college can waste your time.

40% of U.S. undergraduate students start at a community college. However, the average community college student loses 22 credits before earning their 2-year degree simply because those credits don't end up transferring to their target school.* That’s over 7 courses wasted!
