You are in university, you are attending your classes, getting grades, and meeting new people. But often, academics are not enough. Usually it is the getting involved, and the volunteering that allows you to experience new things and expand your network. Whether you are studying online or in person, there are countless opportunities for you to get involved on campus and start creating these memories! The university offers many activities and events online and will also be offering many in person with the upcoming school year. If you wish to get involved, contact club members in order to learn more about the clubs themselves, or upcoming activities and events and how you can participate. Here is a useful website that will help you find clubs, associations and events.https://www.cvuo.ca/clubs-listI will also be dropping another useful website that can guide you to participate in a variety of events and campus activities.https://www.uottawa.ca/campus-activities/
