PIN will create a Co-Curricular Transcript of the various organizations you join, positions you hold, and events you attend. This record is very useful as you look back at your experiences to create resumes and prepare for job interviews.
Why do you want to join? There are many reasons to join organizations: academic support, networking, pursuing an interest or passion, learning something new, or meeting people. Knowing why you want to join an organization will help you choose the right group for you.
How much time can you give? Determine the amount of time you can give based on your school, work, family, and other commitments. Be sure to know if you can fulfill the organization's expectations before joining.
What is the organization's purpose? Knowing the purpose will help determine if it is congruent with your reasons for joining. Also, if the organization is affiliated with an off-campus or national organization, research it for additional information.
What are your financial responsibilities? A number of organizations have dues or fees. Know how much money you are able to spend to participate.
Is the organization you are considering going to enhance your college experience? Being a part of an organization should not mean altering your values or becoming isolated from your family and non-member friends. Any organization you join should complement and develop you as a student and a person.
Starting an Organization
While we can't find an advisor for you directly, Student Organizations and Student Life staff can offer you recommendations on how to find the right on-campus advisor for your new club. Contact email@example.com for assistance or to set up an appointment for guidance.
Students interested in starting a student organization should complete the Petition to Charter form. The minimum requirements for a student organization are: five student members, one campus advisor, and a organization constitution.
