Every year in the fall semester, the Student Programs Office does its best job to make sure that students have an outlet where their interests can flourish. Student organizations come in droves during this season to field questions from freshmen and upperclassmen alike in order to help students find a way to join clubs and get involved on campus. We know this annual tradition of the Student Involvement Fair as a rite of passage, a life-altering experience where students might begin a commitment to an organization that may last for years. The Student Involvement Fair has the potential to initiate organizational involvement that will flourish into something great.
But how many times have we heard the phrase “I missed the Student Involvement Fair, I’ll just get involved next year” or “That organization sounds awesome, but I don’t know how to get involved”? In the opinion of the Board of Student Organizations in the Undergraduate Government of Boston College (UGBC), that phrase has been said too many times. It is something that we are hoping to address. Today, on the 23rd of January, UGBC will be hosting a Spring Involvement Fair from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Lyons Dining Hall (AKA the Rat). We encourage all students to attend in order to learn more about joining the many different organizations of BC that are happy to have new members.
