Get Involved. Get Connected. Make the most of your college experience.
Working hard in classes and getting good grades is, of course, priority #1 while in college. However, the very best college experience includes more than what happens in your required coursework. Opportunities to develop leadership skills, gain professional work experience, benefit from mentoring, develop lifelong friendships and a network of colleagues, and many other professional skills are available to you through participation in student life activities.
Studies consistently show students who participate in these additional activities achieve higher academic grades and enjoy their college experience much more.
