When you are active in campus clubs, you have the opportunity to attend conferences and social events, participate in various competitions or community service projects, and develop leadership and career skills. These activities can also be a great resume builder. Facts show that students that are involved in their college tend to get higher grades and have a greater chance of finishing their degrees!
