When I got to CofC as a music major, everyone told me not to join an a capella club because I was already in three ensembles. I knew that my workload would be heavy, but I love singing and nothing could stop me from joining as many singing groups as I could. So I went to acapella auditions and made it into the Chucktown Trippintones.
I am now entering my third year in the Trippintones and the friends I have made in that club are my best friends in the world. I see them every single day and I tell them everything. If I hadn't joined the Trippintones, I'm not sure who my friends would be now.
Joining a club on campus introduces you to so many people you otherwise wouldn't know, all because you have a similar interest in singing, playing Dungeons and Dragons, hiking, etc.
There's a club for literally EVERYTHING, and if there isn't one that interests you, you can start one! I guarantee that there are others on campus who share your interest and would want to join your club.
One of the best parts of being in a club on campus is that no faculty is involved, so you don't have to reach any certain requirements and you can make the club whatever you want it to be like.
Get involved on campus and make the most of your college career while you can. There are so many free club options, that there is no excuse to not get involved. Joining a club could completely make your college career.
