While attending the undergraduate program at FCH-Católica, students will be encouraged to participate in various activities in which they will be able to acquire and develop new skills. In addition to conferences, seminars, workshops and other activities taking place throughout the year, we highlight some initiatives that will mark the daily lives of students at FCH-Católica:
FCH Student Association (AEFCH)
In order to foster conviviality among students throughout the school year, AEFCH coordinates a series of events that encourage a culture of entertainment within the Faculty. Among some of these annual events are: Freshers’ Weekend, Christmas Gala, Blessing of Finalists, and Finalist Ball.
Pontivírgula Student Newspaper
The Pontivírgula newspaper is a means of communication created and managed by the students of the Faculty of Human Sciences. As a university newspaper, it excels in disseminating topical and cultural news, encouraging students to explore their talents and interests, to acquire skills and to prepare for their professional life.

QuaseFM Radio is a means of communication created and managed by the students of the Faculty of Human Sciences. During the Radio Project module, students create daily radio broadcasts, with partial transmission to the University campus. This helps to bring together different communities that can listen to the station or follow it on social networks.
