How to Get Involved

How to Get Involved

 

There are so many ways to get involved with
the Center for Student Involvement & Leadership!

HOW TO JOIN A STUDENT ORGANIZATION:

There is no official way to join a student organization at John Jay College. Simply stop by the Center for Student Involvement & Leadership and speak to a staff member, or contact the student organization directly to be added to their mailing lists! The Center for Student Involvement & Leadership is open 9am-5pm Monday through Friday, and all of the staff in the office would be more than happy to connect you to the club executives.

Additionally, CSIL hosts an Involvement Fair at the beginning of every semester - check out our calendar or social media to get informed of when these take place. Involvement Fairs are are perfect way to meet your club executives face-to-face and learn about their plans for the semester!

HOW TO START A STUDENT ORGANIZATION:

Starting a student organization is one of the greatest things you can do at John Jay College to leave your legacy. If you visited our Student Organization page and you find that there is something missing there, you can start it! All of our organizations have been started by students, for students.
