We encourage you to get involved in an HRM student organization. Involvement in student activities is a great way to network with other students and industry leaders, build valuable leadership experience, and have fun! Participating as a leader in one of these HRM clubs is another way to differentiate yourself from your HRM peers.
Join us for Club Night, at the beginning of each semester, when you can learn more about each organization.
