Info for High School Students

Consider Student Organizations When You Research Colleges

Choosing your favorite colleges is an exciting experience. It can also be daunting.


While colleges and countless websites have lots of information about academics, there is not much info on the student organizations that will play such a huge role in your college experience.


What organizations does the college have, what is their focus, what do they do, who are the members, how will it help you, etc.? See the discussion below of the many ways that student organizations can enrich your college experience.


For instance, see this partial screen grab from a college that has 15,000 students and 139 organizations. They do not have any information at all on the orgs, and those names do not even link to another page. So how can you know what life would be like if you were to attend that college?

Not very informative, is it?
