3 Huge Reasons Why You Should Join a Club in College

3 Huge Reasons Why You Should Join a Club in College

-------------------------------------

As someone who has attended community college, I have learned a lot about career planning and clubs. Many people are led to the common misconception that sports are the only way to get yourself out there. This is simply not the case.

Clubs in a college environment can impact students in ways not usually known to the average student. Getting involved in clubs can lead to a more refined career path, a stronger foothold in one’s campus activities and leadership, as well as an opportunity to meet new people and experience life changing moments.

Refined Career Path

In the college environment many of us get lost in the school work, not allowing us to actually plan our future. Clubs, in that sense, are a great way to get yourself off the ground and on to the right path for you.

Yes, you may take business classes, but are you in the local campuses business club? More times than not, students will answer "No" to that question. This is a nationwide issue, not restricted to my own campus.

Students need to get a better grasp on their career paths, by people who have already gone down that road, not just a professor lecturing you on the topic. Clubs are very helpful in this way, exposing students to the actual world around them and introducing them to people not just involved in teaching.

This, in itself, creates a bond between that student and individual, generally accepted as a mentorship. Students need help hands down, and the best way to get that help is from someone who has already been there.

Campus extras and activities

Getting involved in clubs doesn’t only help with your career, but your leadership and college experience all together. Students that attend clubs are more likely to form a reformed friend group, helping to push you in the right direction, while having a good time.
Clubs are now larger than ever, offering activities such as sports not offered by University, to clubs educating students to perform better under stress and in leadership positions. Joining clubs is not only easy, but can help you meet new people and expand your horizons, and even take you out of your comfort zone.

Meeting New People

A lot of clubs now offer programs taking students out of state and even to local conventions. For one, I knew someone who, in a business club, got taken along with over three hundred students to "business sit ins". This is a life changing experience for someone who wants to participate in that field, taking someone into the heart of a corporation’s day to day activities.

Clubs will also work to bring in guest speakers to further educate students on things they cannot learn in the classroom, such as home ownership and financing. These guest speakers and new people that these students meet generally have a life changing impact on them.

To wrap things up, each and every one of you who takes the time to read this, should help spread the word to your friends and peers. Hopefully this will help them discover their paths.

Clubs offer so much in the way of career planning, meeting new people, and helping to better verse students in extra activities. Clubs can not only solidify ones education, but actually push them in the right direction and away from unethical activities that are a waste of time.

To all students, spend your time on campus wisely and experience it to the fullest. Please help everyone you see by spreading the word about clubs in college.
