For some, the coming semester at Salt Lake Community College is going to be a new experience, while for others it will be a continuation of your college career. You may think that going to classes and doing your homework are the only things to do on campus, but there is more than that. There are many clubs that you can be part of. These clubs can help you get more involved in the college.
For starters, think of something that you are passionate about or something that is simply part of your life, and chances are that there is a club for that. For example, if you are very passionate about “going green” and saving the environment, the Environmental Club may be for you. Or if you are Hispanic and want to meet other Hispanics attending the college you might want to join the Hispanic Latino Club. Chances are that there is a club for everyone but if that is not your case, you can start your own club.
Clubs are a great way for students to get involved in and outside of campus. They teach you leadership skills, provide opportunities for community service and allow for life experiences that you didn’t think college would teach you. Knowing how to work in a group is essential because in today’s world there are many jobs in which you have to interact with others and socialize, and being part of a club teaches you how to do that.
Regarding getting involved in a club, Ana Archuleta, the advisor of the Hispanic Latino Club, said, “It’s a good way to get involved on campus because you can get opportunities that you couldn’t get otherwise.”
Joining a club her e at Salt Lake Community College is not as hard as it may sound. You don’t have to receive an invitation from a member in order to join. You don’t have to be part of a certain race or ethnic background if you are interested in joining an ethnic club. All you have to do is go to the meetings and pay the fee, and you can automatically become a club member.
You may be thinking how do I know when they meet? Where they meet? The answer is Club Rush. Club Rush is an event where all the clubs on campus showcase themselves by putting up booths, answering questions that students may have about their club, and simply inviting you to join their club. Watch for advertisements regarding Club Rush at the beginning of the semester.
In short, there are many benefits that you can gain from joining a club, from gaining friendship to completing community service hours that always shine on a resume and many more.
