Annual Student Involvement Fair on Quad to Take Place Sept. 11
On Wednesday, Sept. 11, the Office of Student Activities within the Division of Student Affairs will host the 2013 Student Involvement Fair on the Quad from 11:30 to 3 p.m. The Student Involvement Fair allows registered student organizations the opportunity to showcase their group to the rest of campus and recruit new members.
Student organizations often use this event to display previous work and to advertise their mission. Syracuse University boasts more than 300 active student organizations, ranging from cultural and religious organizations to campus publications, arts, Greek life, political advocacy groups and more. The complete list can be found here.
Through participating in an organization, students gain valuable experience outside of the classroom, developing personal and interpersonal skills as well as furthering their opportunities to find their social niche on campus. The Office of Student Activities strives to offer students an environment in which they can hone and nurture skill sets that will help them in the future.
The fair provides all students with the opportunity to become more involved in campus life. For first-year students, the fair is a chance to engage with other students and find their place on campus. Upper-division students have the opportunity to further explore the diverse number of organizations available to them, to make the most out of their college experience.
