Getting Involved

Involvement in your undergraduate major can be one of the most impactful and rewarding experiences of your college education.  Many times, the experiences a student has during their undergraduate education can shape their future goals and aspirations.  Many of these experiences take place outside of the classroom through involvement in organizations, undergraduate research, and study abroad experiences.
