Our campus is huge, and clubs are a great way to find your niche. Find a student organization that matches your interests. If you aren’t sure exactly what you want to get involved in, WIN has an organization matcher, so you put in your interests and it tells you which organizations are based on those interests! You can also check out the Student Org Fair, where many student organizations set up tables. If you want to join a social organization, Greek Life might be a good thing to check out.
Involvement can be more than just a student org. Having a campus job is also great ways to enhance your social wellness! The Student Job Center has a list of employment opportunities specifically for students.

A huge part of your social wellness is being able to talk with others in your circles. This can include both personal and professional communication.
Personal Communication Skills
Communicating more effectively in your personal circle can be as simple as checking in more often with friends and family. Be an active listener, and listen to understand what the other person is saying. Stay aware of the context you are talking in. Things that one group of friends think is funny, another might think is offensive.
Having personal relationships is an important part of anyone’s life. If you are feeling alone on campus, we want to help. The UW-Madison community is pretty big, and it can be hard to make it feel smaller. First off, check out some of the above tabs talking about student centers, involvement, and groups.
