Truman State holds fair to get students more involved

Truman State Students have been busy learning about the different clubs and organizations on campus they can join.

The 'Center for Student Involvement' organized the activities fair in which over 100 clubs and organizations participated. Those organizations ranged from Greek life and sports teams to community service clubs. The event allowed the students to get out and learn about the different organizations if they're looking for something new to do on campus this semester. Experts say that being involved in organizations while in school helps the students determine what their interests are, and also provides a learning experience.

"We have this set up so that people can meet new people and most of the time you join organizations, you tend to have better time management skills and learn new things that you never knew about yourself and about Kirksville and Truman," said Jeanette Harris Courts, of the Truman State Center for Student Involvement.

The activities fair is held in both the fall and spring semesters to help get students involved while going to school at Truman.
