Why involvement is Key


The importance of attending college is not only for students to get a degree, but for them to get an education!  At San José State University (SJSU), students do not have to limit their education to inside the classroom. Through co-curricular activities, students develop critical thinking skills; practice effective communication; build multicultural competence;  learn the importance of active citizenship; gain practical competence/life skills;  discover their leadership and interpersonal style; and overall, feel more connected to their peers, staff, faculty, and the overall campus community.

SJSU students are able to find countless opportunities for getting involved at SJSU, but taking the first step can be difficult. We challenge students to step out of their comfort zone and explore new opportunities.
