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.
