A New Atmosphere

College can be incredibly daunting when you first come in. That's okay though, we've all experienced that cocktail of excitement, nervousness and occasional fear. However, college can be made into an incredibly memorable experience when you find areas to thrive in.

Want to start flourishing? Well, join some clubs and societies!

Cultivating Your Skills Through Interests

College shouldn't just be where you focus on your assignments and studying schedules at the expense of your hobbies and interests; it is a place where you cultivate those hobbies and interests. The best way to do that is through college clubs.

It's fun to do what you love and it's even better to do it with people who love it too! What's better is that clubs are also an avenue where you can develop both soft skills and hard skills.

You are collaborating and communicating with your clubmates, and in turn, it directly contributes to the honing of those skills for your future professional life.

Building Your Network

While clubs can be a great way to build friendships, it is also an effective way to build a network that will benefit you personally and professionally. The connections you make in clubs can even potentially open opportunities to other industries that your clubmates may join in the future.

Clubs like the Moot Club and Editorial Club can connect you with people who have interests in working in industries related to these clubs or any other club.

Who knows? Maybe later down the line, you start looking for an industry change. Then the connections you've made in these clubs can come in handy to help bridge that gap between the industry you're in and the one you're looking to join.

Building Lifelong Friendships

One of the most important and vital aspects of joining college or university is forming friendships. The right friends can help you thrive in your education and also build a support system that everyone needs in their life.

Clubs are an amazing avenue to form and develop these friendships. With all the work and collaboration that takes place within a club, there is a natural sense of trust and rapport that forms quickly over time.

With the added benefit of shared interests, cultivating these relationships becomes way easier, overall making your time at college a much more memorable and less lonely experience.
