Joining clubs and societies while in university presents many opportunities to learn more about yourself, your goals and your strengths.
Most of the time people join clubs and societies in order to release tension from work. For students, clubs and societies help to free them of the stress they have been through during school hours.
Clubs and societies help to develop soft skills which essentially allow us to effectively interact and engage with diverse groups of people.
It is impossible to be working all the time without actually taking a little break, therefore clubs and societies help us to get a break from our studies. Concentrating on schoolwork is obviously important during university life, but giving your mind a break is very necessary and beneficial.
Another great benefit of joining clubs and societies is that you get the opportunity to network with other people. Meeting new students, making connections, and building relationships will all help in future when you are looking for a job because you were all part of the same society back in university so their connections will be valuable.
In a nutshell, clubs and societies are of great importance to the academic life of every student. At SAU, there are a variety of clubs which students may choose to join, including Reading Club, Writers Club, UAV Club, Chinese Corner, sports club, etc,.
