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 of school.
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,
  • communication techniques, and
  • job skills.
Brookhaven College supports students’ participation in institutional decision-making through involvement in various campus committees.
For more information about leadership opportunities for students and other ways you can get involved at Brookhaven College, visit the Student Life Office in the Student Services Center, Building S, Room S201,
e-mail bhcStudentLife@dcccd.edu or call 972-860-4115.
