    I'll be attending a new college in August. Was wondering what every one's thoughts are on joining any of the clubs. Any reason to do so, any reason not to (besides obvious stuff like being interested in the reason for the club or not being interested, etc.)?

    Had two clubs in mind, but I'll probably just not bother.

    Well it depends really if you like the kind of club it is. My husband met his best friend at a club at college. Many of our friends came to be through clubs at university. If you have similar interests, it can be helpful in meeting like minded new people.

    Being a music major is basically like joining a club so I didn't have to join a club, but if I had been one of the more disconnected majors, I would probably join a club. My only goal would be to meet nice people and if people aren't nice I would try a different club.

    Remember that friends can be good to have.

    What two clubs did you have in mind?

    If you are going to be living in a residence hall you might meet people there; but if not, you will have a hard time getting friendships living off-campus.

    I'll be living off campus because it's cheaper.

    Then that fact indicates it might be more important to you to join clubs. What clubs are you interested in?

    What are your interests? I'm sure there may be a club at the college that would fit that interest. I've always enjoyed politics so in college I was on the student council. Whatever club you join good luck to you.
