HOW TO GET INVOLVED

There are so many opportunities to be involved at Emporia State University, you may not even know where to start! From campus activities to athletic events to theatre performances and our many student organizations, there is so much to do at Emporia State! No two student's path to involvement is exactly the same, but there are some common experiences that lead to engagement in the opportunities we have to offer.

Below are three strategies many students find helpful in becoming connected on campus. Watch our involvement video to see how being involved has positively impacted some of our students!


Make New Friends

A great college experience is all about the people. Your best memories about Emporia State will be stories involving your friends and fellow Hornets. Getting involved at Emporia State starts with building relationships. Meet people in your classes. Get to know your professors. Strike up a conversation with a stranger and turn him or her into a friend. Then, when you want to go to a campus event, you'll have friends you can invite to attend with you.

We know that making friends comes more naturally for some, and others find it to be a challenge. If you're not sure how to start, stop by the Center for Student Involvement and meet with one of our Involvement Consultants.
