Should I tackle college alone or affiliate myself in clubs?

Greek Life hasn't been kind to me.I have been turned down three times. I'm currently a junior, majoring in Computer Engineering who is expected to graduate in Fall 2019. I want to experience everything college has to offer, but it runs through Greek life. I delayed my graduation date from 2018 to 2019. Should I give one more shot or finish? #pickmeoverhim

Hi Michael,


There are tons of ways to get involved outside of Greek Life! I attended college in Baltimore, MD and we had over 200 student organizations. They ranged from academic-related interests, sports-related interests, community service based clubs, and so many more. Check out your university's Student Life website and see what they have to offer.


And if you can't find an organization that fits your interests, start your own! Most universities have pretty flexible policies on what it takes to start a student organization. Definitely look into that possibility too.

Hi Michael,


This is a great question and I think you should consider an out of the box suggestion:

Instead of a fraternity consider a honor society in your major - you will meet tons of professionals at all stages of their careers and IEEE membership and benefits will grow as you grow.

For $40 you can get a student membership, gain experience, network, and start/build your own chapter.


Here is one possible link: https://www.computer.org/web/membership/student-benefits/

Computer Society Student Chapters

Use the Student Chapter Directory to reach out to chapters near you. No student chapter at your school? Start your own chapter.

Victoria recommends the following next steps:

Check out the link and let us know what you think. You have a super major, a super brain, and IEEE will totally get you!
