Speaking from experience, I have been a part of three different clubs on campus throughout my time at Central, including Her Campus, Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and the Women’s Club Soccer Team. All of these clubs enhanced my experience at CWU and gave me opportunities that I wouldn’t have had if I didn’t join them.
In all of these clubs I was able to bulk up my resume, network, gain new skills and make lifelong friends. They also gave me the experience I needed to receive a job after college. I hope you will join a club that interests you in hopes of gaining some of the things I did.
How can you join a club on campus?
The quarterly club fair is on May 8 from 11-2 p.m. Make your way down the SURC East Patio, the Chestnut Mall and the Barto Lawn to find a club that is perfect for you.
