So I will try the library, I wish there was some way to know who else was a Buddhist on campus, every other faith has a group except Buddhist. Thank you all again, may you all be peaceful, happy, and well.
Hi zpweston and welcome to Dhamma Wheel
Feel free to start a Buddhist group on campus!
You can begin by making flyers and posting them around campus. State on the flyer that you're interested in getting together with others who are interested in Buddhism. Put your contact info on the flyer so they can get in touch with you (an email address is fine if you don't want to give out number and address).
After some time, you may get in touch with a few people. Then you can go from there. I think most colleges have a minimum number of members rule for new student groups. At my school (Missouri), our group received a small amount of money from student fees (but we were also lead by a monk professor...).
In any case, even if you can't start an actual student organization, you can at least use the flyers to get in touch with other Buddhists on campus. Does your school utilize a campus email upcoming events message? See if you can get a message on there as well.
Does you school have a rec center or gym that offers yoga classes? If so, chances are there's one or two people attending who are interested in Buddhism and/or Eastern spirituality. What about other gyms in the city? I bet if you asked the yoga instructor to say a quick word before class starts, you could announce to the class that you're interested in starting a Buddhist group on campus and if anyone wants to help, stay after so you can talk with them.
Hope these suggestions help. Good luck!
