As a shy transfer student living in a new city and exploring a new school, I was intimidated. For my first two semesters, I kept to myself and did the bare minimum while I was on campus. One day after class I walked down the stairs of the CAB building and saw people gathered around and several tables with different displays. A&M San Antonio was holding their jaguar student involvement fair. If you were unaware, every semester student involvement rounds up all organizations that would like to share their club with the student body. It helps fellow jaguars get immersed in campus life.
After getting involved with student organizations on campus, university life wasn’t so intimidating anymore. It’s a great opportunity to meet people who share the same interests as you do. After this fair, I became a part of Sigma Delta Lambda Sorority Incorporated, All Greek Council (through the sorority) Pre-Health Society, First Gen, Silver Liners, and Young Life. This semester I am proudly adding MASA and Her Campus to my involvement on campus. By joining these organizations and meeting other students, I feel that this has helped build my confidence and has helped me grow as a person.
A&M-SA offers great student organizations that represent a multitude of things. Every organization does so much for the campus and the community. From Greek life to academic organizations, religious & cultural groups, medial organizations and so much more. The Virtual involvement fair has already passed but do not fret, I am here to help keep you in the loop! I cannot wait to dig in and share more about these great organizations on campus and discuss ways you can get involved. Stay tuned for my series on student organizations at Texas A&M University-San Antonio!
