Group decision making, compromise, listening, budgeting and finance, how to organize and conduct meetings, promoting and publicizing events are just a few of the opportunities available to you when you choose to get involved. Think your schedule is too busy or you don’t have time? That's not an excuse! Take the time and make the choice to get involved; we guarantee it will be rewarding learning experience!

This interactive event with games, prizes, and more will allow you to connect with representatives from special interest clubs and organizations, student government, athletics, and recreation sports. If you don’t find what you like, find out how you can start a new club. This program is all about opportunities and is sponsored by Student Activities, Student Advisory Board and Orientation – be there!
