This is part 3 in a six-part series on Ways To Emerge as a Leader on the College Campus
I ended Part 2 by stating that by becoming actively involved in other organizations, I soon gained the confidence to start several of my own along with some friends.
Many of you may be wondering why and how.
Find out who oversees the Campus Activities Department at your school and establish a relationship. I noticed that other groups invited the director out to participate in some of their events, so I followed suit. Networking is important. Plus that paperwork can feel like applying for a job with the federal government, so you may need some extra guidance. Make sure you have everything in the package completed and turn it in on time. Do not procrastinate or you can lose a chance to be an officially recognized organization.
I then recruited many people to build membership.
