The school year has officially began and student organizations are now on the lookout for the next student leaders.
I know you might be thinking twice about joining one because it means juggling acads and org responsibilities at once, but take it from me; it will give you the most memorable experience in your college life. I know because I am in one and although oftentimes it can be demanding, I get to practice my passion for writing and make new friends at the same time.
FEU Tech has academic and non-academic organizations waiting to welcome you. For this first installment, I will give you the lowdown on academic orgs.
