Join an Organization

Joining one of the many recognized student organizations on campus can be a great way to get involved, meet people, and gain valuable leadership experiences and skills.  Not sure where to start?  Here are a few questions to consider as you navigate the process of exploring involvement opportunities.

  • What do you care about? This can be people, places, causes, events, trends, cultures, etc.
  • What skills, knowledge, or insights do you want to develop?
  • What energizes you or restores your well-being?

Still not sure which organization(s) to join?  Consider finding organizations that fall into these categories:

  • Something you care about and want to continue with
  • Something you are interested in but have yet to try
  • Something that advances your academic or professional interests

Try to narrow down the long list of possibilities to just a few organizations/involvements that truly align with your goals, passions, and hobbies.  If you need help finding organizations, search the directory in TribeLink

Finding the Organizations Right for You
  • Focus on joining organizations that bring out your energy, enthusiasm, and curiosity.
  • Focus on "depth over breadth." Choose significant involvement in a few things rather than spreading yourself too thin.
