GET CONNECTED, GET INVOLVED, GET QC PRIDE

Why should I get involved?

Getting and staying involved in one of the most important things you can do while in college. “Involvement” is defined as any activity outside the classroom which enhances and contributes to student learning (Astin, 1993). Being involved can take many forms, from being a member of an active student organization, attending many unique programs and events or participating in our intramural sports. It doesn’t matter how you are involved, it only matters that you are!

Benefits of Involvement:

  • Eases the transition into college
  • Helps you need people and make friends with those who have similar interests
  • Involved students are more likely to graduate
  • Involved students feel more connected to the institution, the campus, the people, and are more familiar with the resources available
  • Involved students report higher levels of satisfaction with their college experience
  • Being involved encourages and advances your intellectual, cultural, spiritual, and social development
  • As a result of your involvement, you will gain knowledge, skills and experience in leadership, communication, problem solving, group development, budgeting and finance, presentation and public speaking, and much more!

 

If you would like to know more information about student life and how to get involved, stop by the Office of Student Life. We look forward to seeing you around campus at our events and programs.

Welcome aboard!

Please send any questions, comments, or feedback that you may have to the Office of Student Life at studentlife@qc.quincycollege.edu
