Things Students Ask: How Many Clubs are Too Much and Jobs

I have a quick question: How many clubs would you consider “too much?” I’m interested in 5 of them, but I don’t know if that’s too much for me to be in.

Also are their anymore on-campus jobs available? If not, do you have any more work place suggestions? Maybe places walking distance close from USF?

This is a great question. I would only say that it depends on the level of activity you anticipate giving to an organization. it’s one thing to go to the general meetings, but once you start committing to participating in activities on the weekends or taking on leadership roles, your time will become severely limited, and that’s only for one organization. Add on another organization, and you’ll be plenty busy.

It’s perfectly fine for you to visit all of the organizations and see what your time commitment is like, but remember to be mindful of your priorities.

Also, there are plenty of on-campus jobs available and they’re all listed online. Expect more to be listed in the next few weeks.

Hope that helps!
