Bring a friend to the Involvement Fair!

Previous fairs featured numerous distinct clubs and organizations, ranging from common college fixtures such as Fraternity and Sorority Life, and recreational and music groups, to more unique clubs like Dance Club, Collegiate FFA, and Tactical Action Gaming. Whether this is your first or last semester at Montana State University, involvement is a crucial part of your experience. Joining an organization of interest serves to introduce you to like-minded individuals – OR – getting involved outside of your comfort zone will help you get acquainted with people you may not normally interact with.

In the long term, getting involved may lead to life-long friendships and treasured memories. For now, joining a club or two may just give you what you really need: plans for Friday or Saturday night to socialize with your new club-mates or weekend plans skiing with folks with developmentally dis(tinct)-abilities.
