Weekend Warrior: Girl Power at Marquette

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Marquette chapter.


So you didn’t get a bid during recruitment? I’ve been there and I know how badly it can make you feel. But I promise, it’s not the end of your social life or your world. Marquette is home to over hundreds of organizations. There are several other groups to join if you’re still in the market for female bonding and community building.  More information about these organizations can be found at the Marquette Student Involvement page. If none of these organizations are quite what you were looking for, start your own! There’s bound to be other people on campus with similar interests. You’ll never know until you try!
