Tech Activities Board is looking for more students to assist in the planning of student activities on campus. Student activities coordinator Katie Williams said the club offers students who join the opportunity to not only gain social skills, leadership abilities, and develop personally, but also a greater chance at employment after college.
Kelsey Jozwik is a former executive member of the Tech Activities Board. She said TAB helped her network with other students and Tech faculty and staff.
“Getting involved has really shaped my college experience,” Jozwik said. “I highly recommend applying to be a member of the Tech Activities Board to get involved. We have free events throughout the year and are very involved in planning campus wide events like Homecoming.”
TAB sponsors or co-sponsors a variety of activities throughout the year such as TAB Tuesday giveaways, Late Night Tech Nights, concerts, outdoor movies, hypnotists, and tailgate contests at football games.
TAB member Luke Patton said he encourages students to join TAB because of the variety the club offers for students.
“TAB is a great way to get involved on campus because they have their hand in so many different campus-wide activities,” Patton said. “Whatever interests you, TAB most likely has a committee for it.”
Williams serves as TABs faculty director. Williams said membership to not only TAB but clubs across campus is crucial to student success.
“Membership in student organizations is vital to student success because they offer students an avenue to put the knowledge and skills they have learned in the class room to use in a practical environment,” Williams said. “All of these skills are so important both in college and in the job market.”
