As an ESF student, you have access to over 40 ESF student organizations and more than 300 at Syracuse University. Participating in these professional, recreational, service and social organizations will enrich your educational experience.
Becoming involved in campus activities and organizations can and should be much more than attending an occasional meeting or social event. When capitalized upon, out-of-class opportunities can provide a forum for leadership, skill development and personal growth. Take full advantage of your ESF education. Complement your superior academic experience with out-of-class involvement.
Whether your plans lead to self employment or working with others, well defined organizational, communication, and management skills will be vital. Such experience is gained through student organization membership, attendance at skill-building seminars, and volunteer services.
"The effectiveness of the undergraduate experience relates to the quality of campus life. It is directly linked to the time students spend on campus and to the quality of their involvement in activities. It is not an exaggeration to say that students who get involved stay enrolled." Ernest L. Boyer
"There is substantive evidence that (students) who participate in campus activities are more likely to succeed in college than those who do not." Lee M. Uperaft
