Serve the Community with Clubs and Organizations

12 Feb

Although college students have a lot going on, there’s always some time to spare. Clubs and organizations here at the university are a perfect way to spend your extra time wisely . Besides creating networks and gaining experience, you can find a club that serves the community. Serving the community looks great on a resume, but it’s also a personally rewarding experience. I got involved in a club my freshman year since I was not working and had some free time. In this club we were able to volunteer at places like Casa Maria’s, Ben’s Bells, and prepare activities for children from low-income families. It was a great experience and I learned so much.

Here is a list of a few clubs and organizations on campus that are dedicated to serving the community.

Arizona Allegiance Honorary– “Supporting the Arizona Wildcats through over 90 years of Tradition, Spirit, and Sportsmanship.”

Arizona Ambassadors Honorary– “Arizona Ambassadors are the official student tour guides of The University of Arizona. They are a volunteer/honorary organization affiliated with the Office of Admissions.”
