Student engagement is not only important for social reasons, studies indicate that engaged students are more likely to excel academically, experience a positive emotional well-being and are more likely to persist and graduate. Extra and co-curricular organizations are important avenues for student engagement, not to mention they are a lot of fun! To learn more about activities and organizations, come to a Student Senate meeting, ask your advisor, or visit with the Campus Activities Office. Don’t see anything that interests you?
