SoIC Student Organizations
Informatics and computing students stick together: they hang out, watch out for each other, and share a desire to make the world a better place. A lot of this happens informally, but we also have student groups that take it upon themselves to build community and help students.
- Host events (like our rockin’ Game Days)
- Represent students’ interests to the school and IU
- Help students adapt to life at IU
- Offer opportunities to network and gain leadership experience
- Raise money for charities
Of course, you’re interested in stuff besides technology, too. Good news: IU Bloomington has more than 650 student organizations (and you can always start your own).
Show Your School Spirit: Be an Ambassador
Web sites are great, but for the real scoop on what it’s like at a school, everyone knows you have to talk to students. Our undergraduate ambassadors give their take on our school to high schoolers, parents, and current IU students. They mentor new students, host visiting students, and attend recruiting and open house events—all while building the communication and leadership skills that employers love. If you’re interested in becoming an ambassador, contact Nancy Lemons, Director of Undergraduate Recruiting and Advising at nlemons [at] indiana [dot] edu or (812) 855-8625.
