Think joining a club or getting involved is not worth it? Maybe you just need a little convincing to get you out there in time for the next club rush on campus . . . 🤔

People Skills

Joining a campus organization is a great way to develop your people skills! You’d be interacting with peers and colleagues and working together towards a common goal, and in doing so, you could improve on skills like communication and work ethic, which are important when you find yourself working with others. If you already have those skills, then joining a club or campus organization would definitely help you improve on them so that you’re able to adapt to various types of groups and situations!

 

Broaden Your Horizons

Don’t limit your academic experience to just the classroom/lecture hall! If you want to network, campus organizations are a great way to get in touch with like-minded people and outside organizations that can help you get where you want to go, especially if you’re looking for a job in a specific field. But if your interests are more on the personal side, no worries! There’s a bunch of clubs out there doing cool and fun stuff. You have to maybe get out of your comfort zone a little and look around to get started!

 

Resume Building

Clubs and organizations look good on your resume! You’ll show employers that you’re dedicated and can handle multiple responsibilities at a time. Not only that, it’ll fill out your resume a bit, especially if it’s a little empty. In addition, if you do end up getting a leadership position in a campus organization that you joined, it’ll tell them that you’ve got good leadership skills, which is a point in your favor!

 

You’ll Have A Blast!

Need 👏 A 👏 Break 👏 From 👏 Your 👏 Studies? If yes, then join a club!! Make the most of your college years by going out and doing fun stuff with people you meet who might later become your friends! That is the most quintessential college experience you can get (aside from spiritually transcending midway through your midterm prep). You probably won’t get another chance like this after college, so while you still can, get out there and explore your passions! Meet cool people and see the world from their perspective! Develop your interests and make some memories!

It’s never too late to join a club or campus organization! All you need to do is keep an open mind and explore! Check out your interests, discover new hobbies, or further along your quest for personal development!
