Much of college learning happens outside the classroom, so make sure to take advantage.
There's more to the college experience than the classroom. Here are the top 5 reasons to join a club on campus:
- It allows students to become connected to their school: Colleges are full of resources, but the responsibility is on the student to seek them out. Being involved helps them to do that.
- It helps them build community: Since they're leaving their family and sometimes their friends behind, getting involved helps them discover new friends with similar interests.
- It allows them to discover their passions and strengths: These will follow them all through life. It allows them to discover what they don't like, too.
- It's a résumé builder: Freshman year is not too soon to begin thinking about positioning yourself for future employment.
- Sometimes, the busier, the better: This will vary a lot by the student, of course, but more free time does not always equal better grades. Being involved will require some organization and time management on the part of the student—and that's a good thing. Source: US News
