Feeling a little overwhelmed?
Don’t know where to begin?
A little intimidated?
Want to join a club or two to fill the void between classes, work, and your social life?
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 Unicycling for Change, the Deal Lizards Society, and Vertigo. 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.
Ask yourself, what iF.
For participating Student & Community Organizations:
For the past 14 years, the Office of Activities and Engagement hosts between 50-70 non-profit organizations on campus.

In 2012, the Office of Activities and Engagement welcomed the addition of Registered Student Organizations to the Involvement Fair. Currently, there are over 215 active campus clubs with membership of over 8000 students MSU students! This event is a great way to educate students about community organizations, registered student organizations and recruit new members or volunteers.
