Student organizations at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville provide great opportunities for you to develop leadership, team building, and organizational skills. Guest speakers from business and industry, experts in their fields, provide guidance and help you develop professional contacts.
Many employers want to know what you have accomplished beyond the classroom. They want to hire leaders. They want people who know how to work with others and get things done. Getting involved in student organizations is a proven way to start building your résumé.
You can participate and become a member of these organizations, whether or not you are a major or minor in Industrial Studies.
