Getting Involved on Campus
Getting involved on campus will help you learn more about yourself, your interests, and your preferred ways of working, while providing the opportunity to build valuable skills that will enrich your university experience and help you build a pathway to career success. Whether you are not sure what program of study to choose or are working toward admission into your chosen program, campus involvement will help. Look for opportunities to join a club or society, get involved with a research project, take a job on campus or volunteer with a huge number of student-run or university-sponsored volunteer opportunities.
Listen to this video from a current MUN student who didn’t always know what he wanted to study but, through his involvement, discovered a pathway he is passionate about.
Getting involved is more than having fun and connecting with others. Whether or not you know what you want to do academically, getting involved offers real benefits that can help you in the short and long term through building skills, making contacts, expanding your network and helping you learn about yourself and the kinds of activities and environments you like.
Knowing why to get involved is only part of the story; knowing where to start is the rest. The Student Volunteer Bureau offers an opportunity to volunteer with both on- and off-campus organizations. Clubs and societies offer another pathway for engagement. You can find a full listing of all clubs and societies from MUNSU. Check out the Student Experience Office, Student Wellness and Counselling Centre, Career Development, and academic units and departments to learn more about how you can get invloved on campus.
