Getting to know the community you’re in and making the choice to explore it can be quite the rewarding experience. In college, we have a very unique opportunity to not just discover more about ourselves, but to find individuals to resonate with. Being in such a diverse environment with a plethora of clubs and organizations to join, there is definitely something for everyone.
Even with the current circumstances, communities at NSU have found ways to keep connected and continue their plans. Throughout the start of the fall semester, organizations on campus have shown what they’re made of and began hosting recruitment events and having programs on and off campus and even via Zoom.
Greek life has much to offer, like having brothers and sisters that help out the community, building professional skills and just having a great time. Visit www.nova.edu/greeks/ and SharkHub for information on the different councils and organizations on our campus.
Cultural groups on campus bring people together through similar heritage. Organizations like the Black Student Union, Asian Student Association, Hillel, Indian Student Association, Spanish Club, Union (LGBTQ+), Nova International Student Association and Pakistani Student Union are just a few. If you want to dig deep into your culture or heritage, these clubs are a great place to start.
If you’re athletic, look into competitive sports. NSU has basketball, baseball, golf, frisbee, soccer teams and more. If you’re looking for a way to stay fit or a more chill experience, intramural sports provides such a path for just-for-fun involvement.
For those who want to be a part of a religious community, look no further than some of the religious groups on campus. There is Ablaze Campus Ministry, Greenhouse Campus Ministry, Chabad on Campus, IMAN and INSPIRE Interfaith Embassy to name a few.
NSU also boasts groups in arts and music, business, pre-professional and so many more. In fact, there are over 386 clubs registered on SharkHub.
With so many options to choose from, it can be easy to feel overloaded with wanting to try everything — after all, variety is the spice of life. Luckily, SharkHub aids in two-way communication between students and RSOs (registered student organizations).
SharkHub is “the main hub for student involvement at NSU,” where you can find out what organizations are active and how to register and create your own RSO. There is no such thing as lack of creativity on NSU’s campus.
No matter where you happen to find yourself, having a sense of community can change everything. From meeting new friends and growing social circles to discussing career dreams with peers on similar education tracks, no one has to make the journey alone.
