Getting involved with a student organization is a great way to connect with students who have the goals and interests that you have, to gain leadership and teamwork skills, and to find volunteer, research, and job opportunities.
Check out the Wisconsin Involvement Network to search for organizations that might pique your interest! If you search with keywords like “health,” “occupation,” a specific health issue, or the health profession that you want to pursue, the WIN (Wisconsin Involvement Network) will generate a list of some great options for you to learn more about.
