Congratulations on making one of the best decisions of your collegiate experience and participating in a Registered Student Organization! Your experience in college is not just about what happens in the classroom, it's also about what you do with your time outside the classroom. You will discover very quickly over your four years how valuable it is for you to be involved. Florida Gulf Coast University recognizes the contributions Student Organizations make to an effective learning environment that prepares students to live in an ever growing multi-cultural society and a global community. Student Organizations serve as a medium for academic discourse, personal growth, leadership development, intercultural understanding, community service, and lasting friendships.
