1. Other members have the same interests as you
It doesn’t matter whether you’re joining the Dairy Club, the ’Cat Pack Captains, the Fencing Club, the Animé Club or any other club that captures your interest. All the other members of that organization will have similar interests to yours or else they wouldn’t have joined. It’s nice to be surrounded by people you can talk to about something you’re passionate about.
2. You always have something to do
Organizations are always holding events, meetings, socials or even just grabbing dinner together. By joining a club on campus, you can easily make friends with people you can hang out with outside of that particular organization’s events.
3. You develop a sense of belonging
The people you meet in these organizations will quickly become like a family to you. You’ll hang out, share stories about yourself, learn new things about each other, give each other advice and so much more. These people and this organization could become a second family to you and your home away from home.
4. You make some friends for life
As mentioned earlier, you’ll make friends with people who have similar interests to yours. You could meet your best friends in these clubs, and they could be your friends for the rest of your life.
5. It’s a great résumé builder!
Jobs and internships love to see potential employees who get involved in their community. Join a club related to your major. There’s the Psychology Club, academic fraternities, the French Club, the Pre-Vet Club and so much more.
