One of the great things about college is the sense of community and spirit that comes with it. Although doing well academically is every student’s goal, getting more involved in campus life can help you feel more settled in this new chapter of your life. If you’re ready to boost your school spirit, we look at how you can get involved in student life.
Join a social group
Universities often have more social groups than they do courses. Societies are a great way to connect with other students who share your interests and build long-lasting friendships. Whether you want to get involved with a philanthropic cause, connect with others who share your spiritual or religious beliefs or join a club suited to your hobbies, there is a group for you.
Nothing says school spirit quite like screaming your lungs out at a match. Even if you’re not particularly interested in sport, attending a match with friends is a great way to have fun, try something new and get involved in school. You may enjoy it more than you think.
Start a study group
It can be hard to get into the excitement of school spirit when you’re struggling with a class. Starting a study group is an easy way to make friends, share ideas and collaborate with other students, and get a bit of help with work you find difficult. Teamwork makes the dream work!
Get a job on campus
Campus jobs are a great opportunity to interact with other students, staff, and faculty while learning about the school’s hidden gems. In addition, campus jobs are often more accommodating to school schedules and offer a chance to learn new skills and gain valuable work experience while making extra cash.
