Why should you become involved on campus?

This is a good question! It is one all students ask themselves constantly during their college experience. Such decisions may range from joining a student organization, applying for a campus leadership position or simply joining others for a social event. When a student finds a group that they connect with, there are many benefits to be gained, which include:

  • Valuable opportunities to learn more about the campus, fosters connections to faculty and staff members, and builds links to the Columbus campus
  • Meeting new friends and interacting with others; when we share an identity with a group, this helps us stay in college and to succeed
  • Constructive co-curricular, social, and recreational opportunities
  • Practical application of classroom concepts, theories, and principles
  • "Real-life” experiences in areas such as citizenship, work and relationships
  • Enhance self-initiative, independence, responsibility, and time-management
  • Leadership skills development, confidence in social skills, and promotes effective listening
  • Practical experience in collaboration, teamwork, and being an effective group member
  • Opportunities for planning, managing and decision-making
  • Development of purpose, values and a philosophy of life
