Student Handbook: Your Survival Guide
Why Should You Get Involved?
Recent surveys indicate that college students who get
involved in campus activities, like clubs, extra- and cocurricular
activities or part-time work on campus, are more
likely to succeed in their studies and less likely to drop out
Involvement in student activities may lead to:
- • increased self-confidence,
- • greater creativity, and
- • improved critical thinking skills.
Brookhaven College students have the opportunity to develop:
- leadership and organizational skills,
