Why should you join a club or an organization at Texas State? Whether you are an incoming freshman, or transfer student or maybe just someone who hasn’t been interested in any extracurricular activities, clubs can be an extremely beneficial way to boost the success of your college career. Not only does it provide a chance to meet new people, but it also looks good to have extracurricular experience on your resume, especially if it relates to what you are going to school for. With over 370 registered student organizations, you’re bound to find something that interests you.

Now, to focus on freshman for a moment. Joining an organization can be an excellent way to meet new people and even make some new friends. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals can be a great way to expand your social circle beyond your roommate, the people you met at orientation or that one person who you went to high school with. Not that there’s anything wrong with hanging out with your roommate, but it’s always nice to associate with people you otherwise wouldn’t get the chance to meet. For transfer students, the same thing applies as well. You may have already had friends who attend Texas State, but the whole point of college is to gain new experiences and create new networks that might benefit you in the future.

So, how do you go about joining a club? Well, the easiest way would be the upcoming Student Involvement Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on September 14. This way, you have almost every organization in one place. You can take your time to look around and find something that you are really interested in and maybe even discover something new that appeals to you. Another way to look for clubs to join would be the Student Organizations Council page. Here you have a very detailed list of every club and organization on campus. This page lists the different types of clubs, what they do, where and when they meet and how to contact them. I highly recommend using these two resources, especially the Student Involvement Fair.

I’ve offered some helpful ways in which you could get involved on campus and have detailed reasons why I think it would be great for everyone to join a club at least once. The next part is up to you. Being lazy and watching Netflix after class is great, but you will probably regret not being more involved after you graduate. If you’ve been attending Texas State and haven’t gotten around to joining a club, now’s the perfect time. The start of the fall semester means that most campus organizations are going to be looking for new members, so get out there and join something.
