One of the best things about Montgomery College is its diversity. Not only do we have students representing many different countries from all over the world, we also have something for everybody here. This world might not be one size fits all, but you can definitely fit in one single thing… and if you’re lucky, even more! The best thing about it —you get to pick it! I’m talking socializing, having fun, meeting new people, learning. Who would want to say ‘no’ to that?
Joining a club may not seem appealing to you at first, but coming from someone who has joined 3 different clubs in the past couple years I’ve been at MC, you’d (hopefully) be convinced to join at least one!
Here are a few benefits of joining a club:
- You get to meet new people. You’ll talk to them, find out you have things in common, you’ll add each other on social media, then maybe like each other’s pictures? That’s possible. After all, we all just want to feel like we belong somewhere. Knowing that there are other people with the same hobbies and interests as you is a good place to start. People learn from one another, and what’s a better way to grow in certain areas in our lives than to hear from people who think like you?
- You get to go on field trips/events. Everyone likes adventures and maybe a few new experiences might just spark something inside you… a newfound hobby or a passion for something. You can never go wrong with being on the spontaneous side of things.
- It looks good on your resume. It shows that you’re serious about something and you’re up for anything that allows you to broaden your horizons. And the wider the horizons, the richer the perspective.
- Free food!!! Yes, you read that right! Most clubs, if not all, usually offer snacks or pizza on the days they meet. I know I don’t ever say no to free pizza!
And no, you don’t have to show up to EVERY single meeting. This is what’s great about clubs; nothing you do counts against you. You’re simply there because you want to.
