UNL fair encourages students to get involved on campus

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – More than 120 different clubs and organizations at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln were part of a large fair on Wednesday to get students involved on campus.

The fair happens every year at the start of the school year to showcase a portion of the things students can do on campus.

Veronica Riepe, director of student leadership involvement and community engagement at UNL, explained how important it is for students to find a niche while at the university.

“Statistics show that our students that are more engaged typically have higher GPA, they’re more likely to be retained, and they’re more likely to graduate,” she said. “And so the sooner we can get them kind of started down that path, the more successful that they’ll be.”

The university is holding another fair Thursday at the East Campus Union from 4 to 6 p.m.

Riepe said having fairs at both locations helps promote a sense of unity between the two campuses.
