I will be a Freshman in college this fall. I am studying Criminal Justice. There is a Criminal Justice club at my school. The rest of the clubs seem kind of lame. Will getting involved in clubs help me in future jobs? Should I join more than one club? #college #job-search #criminal-justice #student-clubs

Joining clubs tends to be a great idea. You can have discussions with people who have similar interests, you'll hear about events and discuss current stories relating to your interests, and it is always great to network with others in your field.

Thanks for your response! Christina A.

Don't just join, but get actively involved! Take leadership roles, chair committees, do fundraisers, community awareness events, etc. While you are correct that many of the clubs are "lame," college is the beginning of the "networking" experience. The guy who was still a "Hippie" in the 80's when I was in college is now VP of the University. Who would have thought . . . ?

Hi Christina! I highly recommend joining clubs in college that peak your interest and are geared directly to your major. Clubs not only expose you to other students but can also share your interests but also provide excellent opportunities to network.
