Getting Involved on campus is a great way to make new friends, meet new people, learn new skills, explore your interests, develop leadership skills, advance your future career, continue your athletics, create new technologies, perform, debate, dance, play, read, teach; the sky, literally, is the limit.
Getting Involved is a “Choose Your Own Adventure”
- Students can choose to be as involved as they want. Some students go to sporting events, others to lectures, or concerts, or plays.
- Some students give back to the local community through volunteer work – building, teaching, cleaning…
- Some students get an on-campus job, give tours, become an RA…
- Other students get involved in the 650 student organizations on campus – to just enjoy each other’s company, to compete with other schools, or to take on a leadership role…
