Get Involved During Welcome Day

You're back at Vol State, and you've started to settle into a groove for the semester. Instead of asking yourself about what's next, you might be thinking it's time to get a little more involved on campus.

On Thursday, the campus will host Welcome Day at the Gallatin Campus from 10 a.m. until noon in the Nichols Dining Room of the Wood Campus Center.

While this event takes place every semester, the spring semester gives all of the clubs and organizations a chance to showcase what they did during the fall, in addition to recruiting new members.

"Students can see what clubs did last semester. They can see what plans they have for this semester, and it's an opportunity to see the new clubs that are in the making," Student Life and Diversity Initiatives secretary Lori Miller said.

One of those potential clubs is a transfer club for students who are planning to transfer to the University of Tennessee once they have completed their studies at Vol State. If enough interest is generated during Welcome Day, Miller said they'll be able to form a club.

But if that club doesn't interest you, Vol State has about 20 different clubs and organizations students can participate in, including Student Government Association, The Settler, African American Student Union, Gay Straight Alliance, Music Club, and Vol State Cheerleaders.
