Amarillo College’s first edition of Badger Connect took place Aug. 21 and 22. During this event, AC’s clubs and organizations were given the chance to promote their incentives and opportunities in order to get students involved.
“Club involvement helps people to come out of their shell and prepares them for professional success,” Jimmy Rae Nye, a psychology major, said.
The clubs at AC provide opportunities to network with others and to promote character development within students. Early childhood development major, Mallori Larson said that club involvement provides social experience and professional development.
Many of the clubs offer scholarship and travel opportunities along with many other incentives, while also uniting members into a group they feel they belong to.
“It immerses students within a social setting allowing them to meet others and make friends,” Lauren Tanner, a secondary education major, said.
