You've made it to your campus! You're all settled in and found a rhythm with your classes...now what?

Maybe you want to:

  • enrich your campus experience

  • learn new skills

  • meet new people

Hmm...how can you get more involved in campus life?

Join A Club

Looking to find other students with similar interests as you? The best place to start is by joining a campus club. You get to meet new people and keep your social skills sharp too!

Campuses usually have hundreds of clubs for many different interests including dancing, reading, robotics, drama, hiking, sports, gaming, acapella, volunteering etc.

Can't find a club of interest? Consider starting one!

Volunteer Your Time

Got some extra time and want to give back to the campus community? Consider looking for volunteer opportunities at the:

  • library

  • accessibility center helping other students with note taking

  • academic program office

  • campus events

Moving book shelves as a library

Try Out For A Sports Team

If you love sports and want to represent your school at competitions, try out for a sports team!

This is a great way to keep healthy. Physical activity can also help prevent mental health problems and manage stress.

Competition also involves winning and losing, which helps build skills like resilience and team work.

Become A Student Government Leader

Looking to use your natural leadership skills? Student government can be a great place for that.

It's also a great way to:

  • represent your peers

  • be the voice of the students

  • influence campus policies

  • make positive changes

Take Up Peer Mentoring

When One of Us Shines All of us Shine

Successfully navigated your way through your first year? Want to help new students struggling to keep up?

Consider sharing what you learned as a peer mentor. As a peer mentor, you can support your peers, help them excel (academically and personally) and gain mentoring experience.
