Students Explore Campus Involvement Opportunities at Mount Union College
September 5, 2003
Mount Union College held its annual student involvement fair for the 2003 Fall Semester on Wednesday, September 3 in the Hoover-Price Campus Center. The fair was held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and was host to over 40 on-campus organizations. Representatives from religious, academic, and Greek organizations were present to provide information to interested students seeking possible membership.
The purpose of the fair was to get students more involved, helping them to find their niche on campus. The fair also provided the different organizations with a chance to market themselves to the students and increase membership.
"Being actively involved with the campus community provides students with a great opportunity to network outside the classroom," stated Will Foran, assistant director of student involvement and leadership. "They learn more and are able to establish connections with faculty members."
Students had the opportunity to sign up for membership in the organizations with the exception of fraternities and sororities, which hold separate recruitments. Mount Union offers over 80 organizations that meet in various locations across campus, mostly in the evening when it is less conflicting with class schedules.
"It is in the best interest of the students to become involved," said Foran. "They are more likely to be successful. But more importantly, they should choose an organization they enjoy being a part of and have fun with it."
