Experiential

Take your learning outside the classroom with experiential opportunities that bring your studies to life – like study abroad or domestic exchange, working as a research or teaching assistant, civic engagement and service learning courses, and doing a thesis or other capstone work. Don’t think of these as “extras.” They’re an integral part of your education – promoting personal growth and academic success – and they need not cost more than you pay for tuition.

Explore Your Experiential Pathways

Joining clubs, participating in sports, serving on house council, and volunteering on campus or in the community keep you in balance and help you to meet like-minded people. Plus, when it comes time to apply for internships and jobs, you’ll need to present yourself as an interesting and engaged person who has done more than just coursework.  Whatever organizations you decide to join, watch for opportunities to gain leadership experience and develop new skills. You’ll gain confidence, experience, and connections that will engage you now and prepare you for jobs and internships down the road.

This work generally begins with an on-campus office outside of your major department, but your major advisors will often be part of the conversation.
