This is a question that is commonly asked by many students as they are preparing to attend or are already attending college. Well the answer is easier than one might think….GET INVOLVED!!
College is a great time for students to participate in various events and organizations. Here at UTA we have over 300 organizations making it easy for everyone to find their perfect match. We have everything from vegan club to gamers club, from various Greek organizations to multicultural organizations. We also have intramural and sports clubs. All of these are just waiting for you to show up and be a part of something GREAT!
One common phrase that I like to apply to most things is this…”To get what you want out of something, then you must also be willing to work for it.” Here at UT Arlington this means that to get the best experience you must go look for it. While some may be lucky enough to have the opportunity find them, others may not be, and have to seek out opportunities themselves. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and go find who you are and where you belong. It can be the official new beginning to the rest of your life!
Living on campus in one of the on-campus Residence Halls or Apartments will also help you get more involved with on-campus life. When you live in a Residence Hall you will have an opportunity to meet tons of new friends and open up the possibility of joining new organizations like Hall Council.
Here is a list of all of UT Arlington’s student organizations and clubs. If you find one that you like, don’t be hesitant to find out when their meetings are and see if it would be something you are interested in joining. Each semester UT Arlington also hosts an Activities Fair where students can come out and find out about all of the various organizations UT Arlington has to offer.
