There’s no arguing that organizations and activities look good on a résumé.  Showing employers that you participated in, or (better yet) lead, a student organization, they’ll know that you’re hard working and can handle multiple responsibilities.

Many student organizations provide opportunities to give back to the community, whether through acts of service, sponsoring events, or hosting charity drives. Not only is this good for society, but it will teach you how a future business can give back, too.  Giving back to the community is the most rewarding part of being involved.
