3 Ways to Get Involved in Your College

College would be pretty boring if it was only class and homework. Luckily, it isn't! Colleges are hubs of extracurricular activities, organizations and experiences. Here are 3 ways to help you find some fun people and groups while you're in college:

Get Involved with Your Major

People in your major or department at your college would be a great group to be around. After all, they enjoy the same things you do! Look into what's going on around your department, you're sure to find some things. For example, at my college, the engineering department has a robotics team, the communications department has a debate program, and the English majors have a literary/visual arts journal that they publish every year.

Use Your Interests from High School

A lot of the things you liked to do in high school are still around in college. Like theater? Audition for one of your school's plays. Play sports? Even if you don't want to play for your college's official team, intramural leagues are a great way for people who enjoy sports to play, regardless of skill. Used to be on the yearbook committee? Look into joining your school's newspaper, or another campus publication.

Try Something New!

Maybe you want to be around people with different ideas and mindsets as you, or you're ready to do something different than what you spent four years doing in high school. College is the perfect place to try new things! If you're looking to meet new people, you can try Greek life, a sorority or a fraternity. If you're just looking for a new experience, you've got almost endless possibilities! Just look around.
