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.
