How to Find Involvement Opportunities

 

We understand that starting at a new school or even transitioning to a new stage in your time at Clemson can be overwhelming, and while you know you want to find somewhere to get involved, it's normal to not know how to get involved.  That's where we come in!  Our office can help you 

 

Take PlaceFinder!

PlaceFinder is a quiz that was created specifically to compare your interests and values to match you to possible involvement opportunites at Clemson!  Once you take the quick quiz at bit.ly/placefinder, you are automatically sent an email with your results.  If you'd like help interpreting your results or taking the next step, consider scheduling a consultation with us.

 

Schedule a 1-on-1 meeting with a student organization consultant

You can schedule a consultation with the CSLE through the student organization consultants to help you take that next step in joining or even creating a student organization, finding a CI, starting research, serving your community through volunteering, and even multiple of these!

Join Student Organizations


You may request to join a student organization from their page on TigerQuest. We also suggest showing interest by messaging their leadership and requesting to attend a meeting. Some organizations may recruit new members only at the beginning of the year, but many are happy to welcome new members any time during the year!  If you see a page without a "Join" button, it means that the page belongs to a campus department, like the Center for Student Leadership & Engagement or Gantt Multicultural Center.  You can join any of their public events and email the leaders in the roster to see how to get involved with the department as well!


Attend Events


TigerQuest also has a list of events open to students and organizations on the front homepage. Which events can you visit to learn more about organizations that interest you? Organizations may also include their events on the TigerQuest homepage to gather greater attendance or publicize their organization to the wider student community.


Track Your Involvement


TigerQuest’s Co-Curricular Transcript can help you track your involvement at Clemson. You can use your Co-Curricular Transcript to update your resume and build your Clemson legacy. Organizations can allow events to show on attendee’s Co-Curricular transcript, which can include service events, trainings and much more.



Visit Tiger Prowl


Tiger Prowl is an annual involvement fair open to all Clemson University students. Tiger Prowl helps students explore new ways to get involved with the over 500 registered undergraduate and graduate student organizations.

Make plans to experience the wonder of Tiger Prowl to find a student organization or volunteering opportunity in the community, or by tabling with your student organization!

 



Visit Tiger Connect


Tiger Connect is a small-scale involvement fair that seeks to connect people to people. In 15-minute conversations, students will meet with three department/office representatives to discuss their interests, values, and potential areas of concern to find involvement opportunities to increase their sense of belonging at Clemson. If you are a first-year, transfer, Bridge, international, first-generation or historically underrepresented student at Clemson, Tiger Connect will directly match you with people that can help you in your transition to Clemson.


If you're not sure where to start, or want to learn more about an involvement opportunity, email us at CSLE@clemson.edu. We will be happy to connect you with involvement opportunities that reflect your values and interests.
