There are benefits for freshmen joining a campus club says Gwen A. Ossenkop, coordinator of Student Activities.
She said clubs benefit students by showing that they’re committed to being active, involved students. When it’s time to transfer, students can get letters of recommendation from their leaders if the club is for their major.
Within the last two years there have been four new clubs created: the American Sign Language, the Garden and Trails, the Think Peace, and the Veterans clubs.
Creating a new club is easy because only 10 students are required. Club members must go in front of the Senate in the FM Union Building to get the club approved.
Ossenkop is “Very proud of the students and proud of our clubs.” To be more up to date on activities, find the FM Student Activities Facebook page to get monthly calendars and times of SGA meetings.
