Are there any particular clubs that would be beneficial post-college?

I'm curious if there are any specific fields of clubs anyone would recommend that might help me post-college. I'm talking about non-frats, since my transfer college doesn't offer those. #extracurriculars #student-clubs #college...

Why don’t colleges support extreme sports?

The skateboarding and surfing industry is expanding endlessly, and almost all colleges continue to support team sports, while starting a Surf team is difficult at most universities. Skateboarding and surfing will be in the olympics soon as well. #sports #skateboarding #surfing #athletics...
