Why should you be involved in a campus club?
Research shows that involvement in co-curricular activities is a
key component to a student’s success.
Participation in clubs offers opportunities to learn more about the campus, fosters connections to faculty and staff members, and builds loyalty to the campus.
It also assists with meeting new friends and interacting with others, provides constructive co-curricular, social, and recreational opportunities, as well as complimenting the classroom by allowing practical application of classroom concepts, theories, and principles.
Participating in clubs helps you develop skills employers are seeking.
It enhances self-initiative, independence, responsibility, and time-management, promotes the development of leadership skills, confidence in social skills, and provides practical experience in collaboration, teamwork, and being an effective group member.
