Joining one or more of the University’s more than 120 student organizations is a chance to make friends, expand interests and learn more about your school.
Although the Involvement Fair was last week, with the crush of people attending it’s likely you missed some things. So here are a few campus organizations that might pique your interest.
Student Government Association: The SGA is the governing body of Seton Hall, run by its students. It also oversees the university’s extracurricular programs. Whether you’re an aspiring politician or just someone looking to make a difference at your school, the SGA is the group to join. And with 12 Senate seats currently up for grabs, now’s the time to make your mark.
WSOU:Ever wondered what it would be like to hear your voice on the radio? Join WSOU and find out. For future broadcasters, Seton Hall’s award-winning radio station provides an opportunity to hone your on-air skills. Though it’s legendary in the New York heavy metal community for breaking famous bands such as System of a Down and Korn, the station isn’t just for metalheads. Students can become DJs, newscasters or sportscasters. Applications are accepted year-round, and after passing an introductory class you’re a staff member.
English Club:This the group for readers, writers or even anyone who likes movies and shows based on books. The English Club allows students to connect while discussing literature, learning more about authors and just watching television on “Sherlock” Night. As an added bonus, members are eligible to join Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honor Society.
The Setonian:Why not join the very paper you’re reading? Writing for The Setonian gives you the chance to learn more about your school and your fellow students than you probably ever would otherwise. Plus, you get to sharpen your writing skills for an award-winning publication. Depending on your interests, you can report for the news, sports or Pirate Life (entertainment) sections – and you don’t have to be a journalism major to do so. To join, take the introductory class or pass Writing for the Media with an A or B.
