Student Involvement Week, January 27–31, serves to provide great learning opportunities for all of the registered student organizations (RSOs) on campus. Students are encouraged to learn new ways of getting involved outside the classroom.
Anna Knepler, graduate assistant for the Student Involvement Center, said the purpose of Student Involvement Week is to make sure students know the opportunities to get involved are endless.
“From joining an RSO, to community service, to taking advantage of all the great opportunities at the Fitness Center, there is something for everyone,” she said. “So often students do not know where to start when looking for new ways to get involved on campus, and this week highlights some ways to do so.”
The Student Involvement Center has planned the following events for the week:
