The annual Student Involvement Fair goes virtual through Bobcat Connect

The Campus Involvement Center is transitioning the annual Student Involvement Fair online this year through Bobcat Connect. The involvement fair has always been a great way to get to know so many of the unique organizations that exist at Ohio University, and this year the Campus Involvement Center (CIC) has developed a tool that will help students do the same without having to search through the crowd on College Green. From academic organizations to cultural and identity-based organizations to Sorority and Fraternity Life, CIC presents involvement opportunities for everyone.

Students can now use the Involvement Calculator, which can be found in the Forms tab on Bobcat Connect, as a way to pinpoint interests and involvement desires. Students must first create an account within Bobcat Connect if they have not done so already in order to access the calculator. Students will then receive a list of organizations that they may likely be interested in getting involved with. Students also have the option to meet virtually one on one with someone from CIC. Through this meeting they can talk about ways to be more involved, and what organizations would suit their needs.

A virtual environment will in no way inhibit the hundreds of student organizations still thriving at Ohio University. For both new Bobcats and returning students looking to get involved with something new, the CIC is here to help students navigate through the ever-growing number of incredible involvement opportunities.
