Why do we promote and encourage involvement?

  • Chances to meet new people - more likely to remember the people in your organization than your classmates

  • Develop leadership skills - including teamwork, organization, and time management, event planning

  • Chances to stay on campus - you won’t get the full college experience if you go home right after class

  • Find activities that compliment your major - there’s a club for almost every program on campus

  • Earn better grades - students involved for at least 15 hours/week are more organized and can prioritize time better

  • Build your resume - employers are interested in well-rounded students, not those with only academic achievements

  • Students pay $68 per semester for student events – you might as well use that money!

  • HAVE FUN!  When you look back at your college experience, you’ll remember what you did at night and on the weekends more than anything else
