There are over 20 great clubs and organizations to join while attending Suny Onondaga Community College this 2011-2012 year. Come check out this fall semester’s OCC CLUBS Fair on September 7th, 2011 from 11am-1:30om in the GSC Lobby.
There is significant research that highlights the importance of getting involved outside of the classroom while you are enrolled in college. Of course, there is no arguing with the importance of courses and learning from your classes. However, the role of co-curricular life in one’s overall college experience is not to be overlooked. While employers are looking for college graduates who are academically motivated, those who truly stand out are those who are well-rounded and have held a leadership role in some aspect of campus life.
Are you looking for an organization that:
Is related to your major?
Provides a service to the community?
Is associated with your hobby?
Will allow you to meet new people and make new friends?
Will keep you in touch with others of a similar background?
Is associated with a professional organization?
Will furnish an opportunity to network with people in the business world?
Focuses on helping others?
Whether it’s holding a resident assistant or orientation leader position, being a member of an athletic team, joining a student organization or volunteering on/off campus, just by being involved — students can find a way to connect with others to enrich their college experience. It’s also a great way to develop new contacts that can come in handy when it comes time to apply for life after college.
Some of the skills you can develop by becoming involved:
Learning to effectively balance your time
Getting connected with others who have similar interests
Developing contacts with potential future career possibilities
Building skills in a wide variety of areas (i.e. communication)
Developing a new interest – expand your horizons and try something you might never have had the chance to do, or may find it difficult to do in the future!
Tips for Becoming Involved
Branch out into something different from high school.
Read bulletin boards and campus newsletters.
Seek out opportunities: don’t wait for others to come to you!
