Whether you’re new to Mizzou or an MU veteran, getting involved on campus is always a great idea. You’re able to develop new relationships, network and gain interpersonal skills in a fun and engaging way. However, finding things to do on a huge campus like Mizzou can be difficult. Luckily, we’re here to help.
What to Do at Mizzou?
Mizzou offers a lot of different opportunities, so all you have to do is find one you’re interested in. If your parents were part of a Greek organization then make a move to see if we have the same house on campus. Joining a fraternity or sorority offers the chance of forming an immediate and an extended network full of people who have similar experiences to you.
If Greek life isn’t your jam, try joining another campus club instead! According to Mizzou’s involvement page, we offer almost 600 student organizations ranging from religion/ethnicity based to simple interests, like mushrooms and Dungeons & Dragons. You’ll find professional and graduate opportunities as well, so there’s something for everyone.
If you’d rather not join a club, that’s okay. Getting involved doesn’t require a membership! Campus Activities Programming Board, is an organization that holds frequent events for all students, regardless of interest. In the past, they’ve held paint nights, midnight breakfasts, and even movies on the quad! Visit their page to see a list of upcoming events.
How Do I Find Involvement Opportunities?
First things first, sign up for the monthly newsletter from MU’ Office of Student Engagement and Campus Activities where you’ll receive a list of upcoming event straight to your email. Then, visit MU Engage, our one-top-shop for all engagement opportunities, to peruse student orgs and upcoming campus events. If you need a little extra help, meeting with an Involvement Ambassador can help you evaluate your interests and find the perfect group for you!
