UC Davis’ many student organizations provide growth opportunities.

An important way UC Davis students gain the skills and experience they need is through involvement in campus clubs and organizations.

“There are a number of reasons why students should join clubs and organizations,” said Lili Bynes, co-director of CA&ES Undergraduate Academic Programs. “One is the sense of community that groups provide. Another is professional development opportunities. In personal development, what stands out immediately would be leadership growth and exploring the unknown.”
