Beyond just consulting your professor, each college has a variety of resources for students. A good starting place is going to the page for your college on bsu.edu. There will be information on your particular school, including organizations, activities and opportunities within it.
The Activity Fair
Right after you move on to campus, walk over to the Jo Ann Gora Student Recreation and Wellness Center to find a club or organization to join! On August 18 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. groups will gather to show you what they’re all about. Each organization has a table to display activities their clubs do, as well as a sign up sheet for you to get started.
Another great resource to get involved is the professors in your college. Professors have a lot of knowledge about the opportunities within your college, as well as careers and internships. Many professors also oversee clubs or other student organizations, so they could help point you in the right direction. Additionally, this is a great way to get advice on your career and future endeavors.
