Find Your Pod is a student-led conference that helps introduce students who are on the same academic pathways to each other.
Joy Kumala, a student and the ASWCC director for Academic Success, and adviser Kunbi Ajiboye, the Associate Director for Student Life and Development are the organizers.

Ajiboye says that if students “feel a connection to other students they become more motivated on their education path.”
