How to Become an Active Participant in College Student Life – Studying abroad is once in a lifetime experience. Along with academics, college life helps students deal with many things and prepares them to tackle real-life situations. Student’s experience with various cultures and people allows them to expand their horizons, helping them see things from a new perspective.
Extracurricular activities boost the student’s critical thinking. Foreign colleges are packed with various activities, volunteering projects, student organizations, sports clubs, community services, fraternities, and sororities, etc. The main goal of extra-curricular activities at colleges to involve in student life is to help them make new friends, learn new skills, stay productive, and make campus feel like home.

Five things help the students to become an active participant in college life:

1. Students Organization

One of the essential things in college is networking. It is a good idea to have people who share similar interests because it gives the student a chance to explore possible career opportunities and learn to reach them.
During the college career, student organization plays a critical part in every student’s life. Student organizations can give you access to opportunities you won’t find anywhere else.
Student organizations allow you to broaden your horizons, learn new skills, and meet people who can further your success as you transition from college to the real world.
Students organization has so many things — music, arts, visual arts, drama, dance, camping, multicultural performances, student government (political), cultural group, faith and identity, and many others.

2. Book Club

Books are the supplement that every human brain needs. The more you read, the more you gain knowledge. The primary purpose of the college book club is to bring students to learn about the various genres and discuss what matters to them. Books help to improve focus and concentration.
Joining a book club helps students stay active, learn new things, and allow them to be more creative and open-minded.

3. Community Services

Community service is an engagement of groups in an organized activity that contributes to the local, national, or world community. Community services are critical parts of colleges and one of the best ways to learn about different cultures, languages, customs, work habits, and many more. Students who participate in community services learn how to interact with a wide range of people from backgrounds much different than their own.
Joining the community service community helps students in various ways, such as network with public service leaders, mayors, head of service agencies, healthcare department, and many more. Voluntary help students grow and help those in need.

Many foreign colleges have voluntary programs mandatory for the students. Benefits of voluntary range from early work experience, eligibility for certain college scholarships and grants, academic credit, and life skills.

  1. Fraternities and Sororities

Fraternities and Sororities are referred to as a Brotherhood and Sisterhood, a social group for college students. The members that form a fraternity or sorority share their efforts, friendship, and knowledge. The club’s primary goal is they learn together, grow, and make the fraternity or sorority more energetic. Fraternities and sororities strive to enhance the student college experience by challenging them to achieve academic excellence and develop their leadership potential. Fraternities and sororities allow students to meet various people through social events, service projects, etc.

5. Sports Club

Sports are a crucial part of a student’s life. Almost every college in the US, the UK, Canada, Germany, France, Australia, and New Zealand has the highest interest in sports. The sports club is one element that foreign universities are famous for, be it football or basketball or any other sports.

One most important lesson sports teach is discipline, a significant characteristic that every student needs to learn to excel in their career. Sports promote growth, self-development, empower students with various life skills, and enhance their capabilities.

An active participant in sports boosts self-confidence in a student’s life and helps them hone their leadership skills, which add value to their personality.


There are numerous advantages of studying abroad at any stage of education. Finding the right program that will help you meet your goal should not only be the intention. Being an active participant in college boosts self-esteem and expands awareness of diversity. The fundamental life skills are taught outside the classroom. Community participation in college sets the stage for a lifetime of learning in, reaching out, and building connections that bridge barriers.
