Your studies should be very important to you, but in order to be a successful student, you need to balance academics with a social outlet. A great way to meet both needs is through student clubs and organizations. Student clubs and organizations will provide you with a wide variety of opportunities to become involved on campus and throughout the community.
Being a part of a club will provide you with new life experiences, valuable leadership skills and abilities, and opportunities to express creativity and talent. It is important that you find an organization that best fits your needs.
Last week, Fanshawe College hosted “Clubs Day”, where club organizers set up booths and introduced their motives to Fanshawe students for the first time.
Kevin Kaisar, who is VP of Internal Affairs here at Fanshawe, says that clubs are essential to building character.
“Many college and university students spend time trying to find themselves, or trying to find where they can fit in. I find that clubs help you figure out your placement and bring out the more enthusiastic version of everyone’s character.”
Kevin also continues to say your skills begin to develop and create something new in clubs. In other words, you can do what you’re good at, but can learn how to do it differently, or even better.
Besides that, there are a number of reasons that scholars expect to benefit from participation in clubs and youth organizations. Be it the activities, the roles, or even the relationships they build, there is no doubt that clubs help you develop your skills as a student, and as a human being.
Some of the clubs at Fanshawe include a Muslim student club, a music club, and a latin dance club.
You might find something you never thought you would like or never thought you could do. You may even unearth an interest or ability that was long forgotten that can be used once more.
Get involved on campus, it opens many doors in life. See what clubs have what you’re looking for, or have something unfamiliar that may be worth exploring.
