 Reasons for Getting Involved

Getting involved in student organizations enriches a student's experience.


Such experiences are known to: 

  • improve retention and graduation rates
  • provide mutual support 
  • present opportunities to be involved and meet other students


Taking on a leadership role within a student organization gives students the opportunity to become leaders and earn the respect of their peers and professors.


While student organizations are only as good as the students who participate, professors are an essential part of ensuring that student organizations are successful. Professors can provide institutional knowledge, make event suggestions, and help develop the organization.
