Student Dietetic Association
The Student Dietetic Association (SDA) is a volunteer student organization primarily intended for nutrition students, but membership is open to any major. The SDA meets regularly and provides its members with guest speakers who can help with various academic and professional development issues such as time management, academic tutoring, preparation for the graduate record exam (GRE) and career planning. SDA also assists students in preparing the dietetic internship application and networking with nutrition professionals within the community. The meetings allow for the members to meet other nutrition majors and get involved in nutrition outreach activities. The SDA is involved in many campus activities such as: Get-A-Clue, Barefoot on the Mall, Haunted Health, and National Nutrition Month. Community activities are encouraged and may include such activities as health fairs, Meal Exchange Program, and Cross Works events. SDA is annually recognized by Campus Wellness one of the top student volunteer organizations on campus. The SDA holds an annual Recognition Ceremony during the spring semester to acknowledge its members’ service. The SDA encourages students to get involved in their professional organizations by supporting attendance at the annual NC Dietetic Association meeting. Here members can network with dietitians throughout North Carolina as well as hear presentations on up-to-date nutrition topics.

Graduate Student Dietetic Association  
The Graduate Student Dietetic Association (GSDA) is a volunteer student organization primarily intended for graduate nutrition students, but is open to graduate students from any major. The GSDA meets via web-based blackboard systems regularly and provides its members with opportunities for networking between distance and on-campus based graduate students. In addition to networking opportunities, the GSDA also connects students with professional (e.g. American Dietetic Association and Society of Nutrition Education) webinars on a variety of nutrition professional skill building topics. The GSDA promotes and facilitates community volunteer opportunities in which GSDA members volunteer their time to promote health and wellness in their local communities. The GSDA collaborates with the undergraduate Student Dietetic Association (SDA) to present local nutrition experts in campus-based lectures that are recorded and delivered via the web. The GSDA also provides opportunities for networking with and mentoring of SDA members and high school students interested in the field of nutrition.
