Get Involved!

Being a member of a student organization can be an important factor in the success of your Highlander Experience at NJIT.

Your friends, classmates and the campus community can help you transform your Highlander Experiences into a place you can call home.

Balance

It is important to remember that you could get “too” involved.  Achieving a healthy balance of your school work, friends, and family and work schedules with your involvement opportunities can be a challenge for any student.  We want to make sure that you can achieve a healthy balance of priorities, so they complement one another instead of wearing you out. Creating that balance can synergize your Highlander Experience at NJIT.
