Campus Involvement and Belonging with Emmy

Segment #10 from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point


All right, let’s meet Emmy. She’s a senior from Waunakee, Wisconsin, and she’s gonna tell us all about student organizations here at UWSP, plus some of the clubs and projects she’s part of on campus. Take it away, Emmy.

– Thank you, Alex. Ever since I was in high school, I loved being involved in different clubs such as forensics and mock trial. When I was looking at different universities, I knew I wanted to continue being involved in learning new leadership skills. What I find special about UW-Stevens Point is how much value there is in campus Involvement. A huge part of college is finding where you belong in this world and with over 260 student organizations, campus and community events and resource centers, finding your place is a breeze. I was able to find my place in Greek life, both serving as the vice president of membership for my sorority and the vice president of risk management for Inner Greek Council. I’ve also found my place as president of our Gender and Sexuality Alliance and by founding our collegiate forensics team. The university and campus engagement have made creating and participating in student organizations a fulfilling experience by allowing the students to take the reins of their organizations. This is also a great way to meet new people with similar interests and goals. Being involved on campus is not only fun and a way to relieve stress, but teaches valuable skills outside of the classroom. I have learned organizational and communication skills, how to plan large scale events, conflict resolution, and how to integrate these skills into my everyday life and career. When I graduate, I know I’ll be ready to take on any goals I set my mind to because of the skills I’ve learned while creating and leading student organizations and the connections I’ve made. I’m so thankful for UWSP’s student engagement. Back to you, Alex.

– That’s right, Emmy. Wow, you really can do just about anything Here at UWSP. Emmy, thank you for telling us all about student organizations here and showing us how easy it is to get involved and belong to something you’re passionate about on campus. Thanks again, Emmy.
