Participation in para-professional student organizations can be an important part of your university education. Being involved in activities outside the classroom can help you learn more about your career field and future career opportunities. And many employers consider involvement outside the classroom to be an important indicator of your potential, personality, and adaptability.
Membership in a student professional organization can also offer additional benefits such as learning more about your discipline, meeting industry leaders and benefiting from their experience, and developing closer relationships with other students and faculty advisors. These organizations have met standards in order to receive University recognition and each is guided by interested faculty members.
We encourage you to become involved in at least one School of Applied Sciences and Technology organization. The earlier you get involved, the more beneficial contacts you can establish with students, faculty, and industry representatives. Early involvement also means you will have more beneficial educational and personal-development experiences and will be more likely to attain leadership positions in the organization.
