Get involved at your campus!
“Did you find that being in clubs benefited your overall college experience?”
I love this question because when I started, I was a bit hesitant to join clubs. I did not want my time to be consumed by attending club meetings and participating in the student events. In reality, it is absolutely the best thing any student in college can do!
I was a member of many clubs while I studied at SPC. I was a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the Student Government Association, the Honors College, SPC Model UN club. These are just a few. I found that the busier I kept my schedule, the better my school work became.
My experience gave me priceless time management skills. It is also good to join clubs that interest you because you will make friends who share many of the same interests. So, don’t be afraid to join.
Attend the meetings. This way you can get a feel of the club’s mission and what they do. Participate in the Quad events. Most clubs have tables and are more than happy to give you information. So get involved! There are many clubs that will offer you many opportunities.
Joining clubs and being active on campus is by far one of the best ways to make your college experience an unforgettable one.
