Students benefit substantially from being involved in campus organizations. Involvement in clubs helps students develop skills employers are seeking: decision making, leadership, cooperation and communication. Being involved in programs, clubs,, college committees and activities helps foster intellectual, social, cultural and recreational development of students.
