Why Should You Become Involved on Campus?  

This is a good question!  It is one all students ask themselves constantly during their college experience.  Such decisions may range from joining a student organization, applying for a campus leadership position, or simply joining others for a social event.  When a student finds a group that they connect with, there are many benefits to be gained, which include:

     Offers valuable opportunities to learn more about the campus, fosters connections to faculty and staff  
        members, and builds links to the Columbus campus.
