This is especially true if you live off-campus. Whether your interest is yoga, reggae music, or global warming, stu- dent organizations are a great way to get involved in activities you enjoy. Future employers and graduate schools also look favorably upon students who actively participate in organizations. Seek out the organizations that seem interesting, are visible on cam- pus, and take their topic or cause seriously. It’s the best way to meet new people who share your interests. Check your college’s website for a list of the organizations on your campus. Below are examples of the kinds of organizations often available. “It’s really important to be part of a group or involved in an activity. Being in the Glee Club has been my most rewarding college experience.” John, senior business major Community Service Through community service organizations, students contribute their time and energy to serve the needs of the neighboring community. Honor Societies These associations recognize and encourage superior scholarship and leadership. Members of Mortar Board, Phi Beta Kappa, and other such organizations make important career contacts. Members often continue to participate in these organizations long after their college years. International Clubs Comprised of students of all nationalities, international clubs are avail- able for students who have an interest in other cultures. They provide a great opportunity for U.S. and international students to meet and interact. Student Activities and Organizations
