  • ​​Offers valuable opportunities to learn more about the campus and fosters connections to faculty and staff members.
  • Assists in meeting new frien​ds and interacting with others; when we share an identity with a group, this helps us stay in college and to succeed.
  • Provides constructive co-curricular, social, and recreational opportunities.
  • Compliments the classroom by allowing practical application of classroom concepts, theories, and principles.
  • Affords “real-life” experiences in areas such as citizenship, work and relationships.
