Getting involved on campus is a good thing. Getting over-involved is not. As students refine their goals and interests during their sophomore and junior years at SLU, we hope that they also refine their involvement.
Depth of involvement and leadership, versus breadth of involvement (membership in a lot of programs or organizations), is very important developmentally and can assist in learning and personal growth opportunities, which will come in handy as you seek internships or full-time employment after graduation. Support for our values of leadership and service does not happen through stretching yourself too thin, but in really learning through leadership and depth of understanding.
Explore these many ways to get involved:
- Join a student organization that supports your major/career aspirations
- Join a student organization in which you are personally interested
- Develop your leadership skills by considering ways to refine your campus involvement to more fully support your interests and goals
- Participate in a Campus Ministry retreat or mission trip
To find more ways to get involved and refine your leadership opportunities we encourage you to visit the Student Involvement Center webpage.
