We spend so much time focusing on what international students do inside of class, but what about after the school day and homework is finished? Below are clubs and organizations that exist at each of these universities to help with meeting new people, leadership, creativity, and more!
Canada: St. Francis Xavier University
Leadership opportunities: Student government that represents the students by working with the administration to guide how you want to see the university function. You can become elected where you'll run a campaign to become part of the student union. This is an excellent opportunity to develop your leadership skills.
Netherlands: Tilburg University
Tilburg University also has a student government that you can participate in to make a positive change in the way things are structured in the university. Tilburg also has student associations and student groups run by students like you and offers trivia nights, networking events, and more.
Switzerland: Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne
EHL offers dance and music committees. They also provide rugby, cheerleading, volleyball, and more. Whatever your interest may be, there are committees to explore. Students also have the chance to create their own committees from scratch.
U.K.: University of Cambridge
The student societies at Cambridge are separate from the university, and they allow you to network, meet new people, try new things, or become professionals in your craft outside of academia. Cambridge offers 500 student societies and clubs for students to explore themselves.
U.S.: North Carolina State University
North Carolina State University has over 700 student organizations; some examples include running a daily newspaper, Dj for a radio station, build robots, and so much more!
