Student Involvement Week kicks off today and will continue until Friday with different events each day encouraging campus involvement.
Graduate assistant for the Student Involvement Center (SIC), Michael McComas said the program was completely restructured this year in order to have more structure throughout the week.
Today’s event is the “Advisor Round Table Lunch” from noon to 1 p.m. One of the key people in any Registered Student Organization (RSO) is the advisor. The SIC will give thanks to all the advisors as well as hear feedback about the advisor role. McComas said they will also offer students advice on how to find connections on and off campus.
RSOs that are interested in doing service projects with local community organizations and need some guidance can attend the “Philanthropy, service and volunteering, OH MY” from 7 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, students can head over to the Brown Ballroom for Winterfest. Just like a smaller version of Festival ISU, Winterfest brings RSOs together to talk to students about their organization. Each RSO has a table with information and maybe even some giveaways.
“This is a chance for new students, transfers and old students to see what organizations have to offer,” McComas said.
“It is a way to get students involved and see what is offered through other offices, not just the Student Involvement Center.”
The next day, the Student Fitness Center will hold the Winter Rec Showcase. RSOs and individual students will learn about how they can become more active during the winter.
The week wraps up on Friday with the Student Involvement Center Open House. Students can come into the office to meet the SIC staff and learn more about the organization that put this entire week together.
This year students will not only get an RSO fair but an entire week of educational activities related to involvement and being more active. Students are encouraged to attend as many events as they can and start getting involved.
