Why Involvement Matters:

Getting Involved in student activities can lead to success in many areas of life both during and after one's term as a student.

Getting Involved in college brings the obvious benefits of peer contact, productivity, and meaningful leisure time. In addition  students participating in student organizations and other activities gain the opportunity for practical application and can round out their resume.

Getting Involved in activities, clubs, or organizations is of proven interest to employers. The personal contacts one makes when active in student life programs may serve as the foundation for lifetime friendships and networking sources.

Getting Involved in student leadership opportunities will enable you to discover your leadership potential, build your confidence, and develop and / or sharpen skills you will use throughout your life.
