In high school there were a limited number of clubs and activities one could participate in. There was drama club, math club, science club, band, choir, and sports. Of course there were always some other clubs sprinkled in there too, but those were generally the same from school to school. In college, there is a wide range of clubs and activities one could join. Most schools have some sort of “Club Fair” where the various clubs and organizations hold tables and get interested members. This is EXTREMELY important. The clubs I joined as a freshmen are clubs I still associate with today as a senior.
So here is a list of just SOME of the options for clubs and activities on campus. Check out your college resources to see what clubs and organizations are right for you.
