You can work alongside other students, explore new things, dive deeper into what you already love, and hone those leadership skills (studies show: employers love seeing extracurriculars).
By the way, we call extracurriculars "co-curriculars."
The idea behind this is that learning happens both inside and outside the classroom. Co-curriculars are great opportunities to take what you learn in the classroom and apply it to your organization, as well as taking lessons from your outside-the-classroom involvement and applying those lessons to what is happening in the classroom. It's a win-win!
There are organizations for just about anything, from snowboarding and cancer fundraising to service projects and belly dancing.
For a taste of all the clubs and orgs at Virginia Tech, put Gobblerfest on your calendar! This year’s event will take place on Friday, August 31 from 4 to 7 p.m. on the Drillfield. There are nearly a billion (slight exaggeration) booths and activities set up so that you can explore all the opportunities out there.
You’re probably wondering, “How in the world am I supposed to find an organization for me?” Let us introduce GobblerConnect.
