Campus Life - Get Involved in Student Organizations
Each student’s academic experience should be individual and
personalized. While achieving exemplary grades in the Institute of Applied Technology is immensely important, students should accompany their schoolwork with
participation in campus clubs for a deeper, more rewarding college experience.
By including club involvement on a resume, students can heighten their chances
of success after graduation.
