U Belong Where Everyone is Welcome

Recovery on Campus, or ROC, is a University of Minnesota student group that offers camaraderie and support to anybody who wants to be a sober member of the campus community.

Staying away from drugs and alcohol is not easy, especially around a big university. For those trying to maintain sobriety, it can be overwhelming. For those trying to have sober fun, it can feel impossible.

ROC was built on the belief that we can’t stay sober by ourselves, and that we aren’t very much fun by ourselves either. So, why do it alone?

ROC accepts and welcomes people with a wide range of substance use history. Whether you are an ex-heroin addict in 12-step recovery, a heavy drinker who is beginning to lose control, or a freshman who just had a terrible weekend of partying — we welcome you, no matter what happened to you, or where you come from.

Come hang with us, relax, reach out, and hopefully, we can find a common joy in sobriety.

Getting Social, Online and IRL

ROC organizes social events on campus and around the Twin Cities. Join us for food, fun, friendship, and support — and bring your friends! Follow us on Facebook to see what we're doing and join us for fun activities in the real world too.
