Getting involved on campus can be a rewarding experience. You can meet new people, develop personal and professional skills, apply learnings from the classroom, create a well-rounded university experience, and can result in a comprehensive Involvement Record that may be used when applying for job opportunities or post-graduate school. There are four main ways to get involved:
- Clubs & Societies are student-led groups coordinated by the Student Association. Clubs can centre around any special interests from arts and drama to spirituality and culture. Societies are student-led groups that are more academic in focus and based on your faculty or program.
- There are various levels of sports teams you can join on campus. Varsity teams compete against other university teams. Intramural teams are casual, all-levels, play on-campus and compete regularly against other UOIT intramural teams in the same sport. Extramural teams are casual, all-levels, and play off-campus against other universities extramural teams in the same sport.
- University departments are often seeking volunteers for event support or student representatives for committees.
- Additional trainings and professional development opportunities are offered occasionally on campus. They are a great opportunity to add specialized skills to your resume and Involvement Record.
