Want to make the most of your college experience, then getting involved on campus during your free time between classes, studying, and work is the way! Getting involved also provides you with opportunities to engage with classmates, gain valuable “real-world” experience, and work to achieve common goals, while developing social and professional relationships. Plus, being involved looks really good on transfer and job applications! Student clubs and organizations help to enhance the quality of student life on campus and provide leadership and engagement opportunities. Student Life and Activities recognizes and supports over 75 student clubs and organizations. Clubs and organizations range from cultural, academic and honor societies, recreational, religious, and special interest. Need more reasons – Check this Out!
The purpose of clubs and co-curricular organizations is to encourage personal and professional growth through social, cultural, occupational, and service co-curricular opportunities that supplement the academic experience. Clubs and organizations are funded through Student Activity fees paid each semester, so students must have their student services fees paid up to date to join clubs and organizations!
