While you're sure to find plenty to do at State, students often discover real advantages in joining official University clubs and organizations. These organizations offer not only pastime and recreation, but opportunities for personal, academic, and career growth as well.
Student involvement helps you meet people, both students and faculty, that can become lifelong friends; and later, colleagues. Plus, they look great on a resume, especially if you've held a leadership role, which gives you an edge when you enter the job-hunting world.
So have a look, see what you like, and get involved.
