Many different clubs and campus organizations have been mentioned blog before. This is for good reasons because being in a club/campus organization is one of the best things to do during your college years. . There are many different advantages in joining a club from making friends to preparing for life after college. There are many different clubs on campus in different areas of interest. So why should you join a club or campus organization while at WT? Here are three main reasons:
- Meet People – By joining an organization on campus you are able to meet different people both on campus and off campus. Organizations are a wonderful way to meet people on campus that are interested in the same thing as you even if you are in different majors. Another advantage is being able to meet people from off campus that in similar organizations. It’s by making these connections that you will benefit in your post college years.
- Spend Free Time – Being in an organization gives you a great way to spend your free time. There are many evenings and weekends when I find myself with nothing to do but lay on my bed and stare at the ceiling. It’s these moments that being part of club is wonderful because of the extracurricular activities that you are able to take part in either during part of a club meeting or a club activity.
- It Looks Good – This may seem a rather superficial reasoning, but being in a club or campus organization looks wonderful on resumes and scholarship applications. Being in a club proves that you are getting involved during your colleges years, and those who are above you enjoy seeing that. Though you may not a leadership position in the club, simply being a part of it is a great plus after you are finished with your college career.
