One of the strongest influences on college retention and satisfaction is involvement. When school is just a job, sometimes it is a little easier to quit. After all, it doesn't pay you and the rewards can seem far and few between.
That's why universities like Austin Peay set up so many opportunities for students to get involved. From student organizations to extra-curricular lectures and recreational field trips, the connections you make while tending to this part of your university experience can last a lifetime and provide you with inspiration right when you need it most.
Check out below for ways to get involved by joining student organizations and/or attending campus events.
The biggest high impact experience for students is student organization involvement. Click here to find societies, clubs, and organizations relevant to your college life. There are two organizations at APSU specifically catering to nontraditional and students, but nontraditional and transfer students should also consider joining other organizations.
Tau Sigma is an academic honor society designed specifically to "recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students." Transfer students who have completed one year worth of college credit and obtain a semester GPA of a 3.5 or above their first semester at APSU will be invited to join. Members receive a graduation cord.
Attending events is also an easy way to be involved. Just sign up, show up, and start enjoying yourself! Attendance leads to support networks, not to mention free food and other perks! Events for the entire campus can be found here on PeayLink. Check out the events the Adult, Nontraditional & Transfer Center are hosting this semester under our events tab!
