Why You Should Get Involved on Campus

  1. It’s a great way to make friends
    Maybe you’re moving onto campus for your first semester or you may just feel like you haven’t found a group of friends that truly “get you” yet. Either way, getting involved on campus is a great way to meet like-minded individuals who share similar interests with you. Join a student organization to find your people!

  2. It’s a fun way to spend your down time
    While we all love a good Netflix binge, being asked “are you still watching” for the tenth time in one day can feel a little discouraging. Being part of a student organization gives you something to do outside of class that includes more than a date with your couch and The Office reruns.

  3. It’s an awesome way to boost your resume
    Whether you plan to go straight into the workforce, pursue a graduate degree, or have no clue what you want to do after graduation, it never hurts to pad your resume with extra-curriculars! Employers and graduate schools alike LOVE a well-rounded candidate!

  4. You’ll have a greater sense of belonging at UofSC
    Getting involved on campus gives you an even greater affinity to the University of South Carolina! If you join a student organization (or a few!) that you love, I promise you’ll be counting down the days you get to return to campus after a break.

  5. South Carolina students are the best students
    This one’s plain and simple. The University of South Carolina is the greatest school in the world and our school (((hands. down))) has the greatest students! Get involved to meet other amazing students and make lifelong friendships with your fellow Gamecocks!
