College is about more than academics. Student organizations and activities offer great opportunities to gain experience, develop leadership skills, explore new ideas, meet great people, and… yes! … have fun.
Here’s the real benefit of having 3,000 students: we have people interested in just about everything. From music groups and political organizations, to the student newspaper and volunteer projects, to academic, religious and cultural groups, the challenge is finding time to get involved and stay involved.
