Navigating the Explore Page

Whether you are seeking to get involved in a student organization, or discover what events are happening within the NMSU community, Crimson Connection is your pathway to connecting with student life and getting involved with the community.



Crimson Connection has both a public version of the site as well as a customized view with additional content for campus users who are logged in using their Aggie ID username.

The Explore view is the default view when users log into the community.

Clicking on Explore will take you to the community home page, where users can see important campus alerts, their organization memberships, check out upcoming events, read news and articles, and find helpful Campus Links.

The Explore view is also where users can view organization pages and access content created by organization officers or administrators. Every user in the community will have access to the Explore View.

The public Crimson Connection site is accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Organizations in Crimson Connection can choose whether the events and content they create is shown to “Anyone in the World”, “Students & staff at Crimson Connection” (users must be logged in with their Aggie ID username), or “Organization Members” (only visible to members on their roster).
