Involvement is important to the achievement of college students. According to Singley, an involved student is a happy student; and a happy student is a successful student. Auburn University provides an ample amount of involvement opportunities with over 300 organizations on campus that range from hobbies, academic interests and intramural sports.
Some of the more prominent organizations on campus include Student Government Association, University Programs Council and Greek life. A common question is the number of students involved in Greek life – at Auburn, it is approximately 25 percent. While these are great outlets that many freshmen get plugged into, there are numerous other clubs and channels in which a freshman can become involved.
