Professional and Student Organizations

We strongly encourage you to join one or more professional and student organizations.  These groups are supportive, collegial, and purpose-driven.  They're ideal environments to find new friends and build your professional network.

Once you've found a club that you like, consider running for office to become a club leader.  The leadership skills that you'll gain will look great on your resume, impress your future employers, and translate to lifelong career success.
