Get Involved, Gain Skills

Getting involved in on- and off-campus activities for pay or as a volunteer helps develop skills, build resumes, construct successful graduate and professional school applications, and will help you to succeed in life after graduation. It will also help you to clarify your interests and strengths.

Within Your Program

Many programs have societies and clubs which provide excellent opportunities for you to get to know your peers and discuss topics related to your degree. Your department may also offer opportunities to get involved in conferences, associations, co-op and practicum placements, events, and research. Your professors are also an invaluable resource.
