Lopers had the opportunity to get involved in campus activities and organizations Wednesday at the annual Student Organization Fair around Cope Fountain.
Representatives from dozens of UNK’s 170 student organizations were on hand to answer questions and invite students to their next meetings. The types of organizations varied from sororities and fraternities, a cappella, gamers and multicultural groups to those with an academic focus, leadership-centered programs and religious affiliations.
Renae Zimmer, director of student engagement, said involvement in a campus organization helps students develop their soft skills and better understand their own abilities, talents and career goals.
“Being involved during your college years gives you the opportunity to show who you are as a person outside the classroom and what you have to offer a business aside from your academic achievements,” she said. “It helps you stand out from your peers, which can give you an advantage in a job application and more.”
