Academic clubs??? Worth it to meet people???

<p>Hey all, i'm in my first semester at Pace University (which kinda sucks btw), two months in and i haven't met anyone, it's pretty sad. I commute so it's pretty hard for me to meet people, and my classes are really small too (about 20 per class) so everyone seems to be in their own worlds.</p>

<p>Anyway, i'm like dying to meet people, go to parties, get **** faced, etc. So i was thinking of joining a club, but almost every club they have here are academic and idk if i want to join those, is it worth it? Will i meet preppy students?? Any opinions or suggestions are appreciated, thanks!</p>

<p>Only join a club if you're genuinely interested in whatever it's about. This will serve you two purposes:
1) You won't be completely bored/lost/uninterested in whatever is discussed
2) It'll improve your chances of meeting people who are into the same things you are</p>

<p>^ TotALLY</p>

<p>I plan to join a multicultural club</p>

<p>maybe an academic club in Medicine/Drama</p>

<p>Hmmm k k, gotcha. I'll probably wont join any since i don't even know what i want to study yet. Maybe a latin american club (i'm from mexico)... mehh.... I'm just freaking bored all the time, maybe i should i just ask someone about any parties this weekend or something</p>

<p>academic clubs=resume boosts/opportunity for volunteer work
Most of the people in groups like this are extremely studious.</p>

<p>I don't think the majority of people in these groups will be interested in becoming ****faced/partying (at good parties anyway.)</p>

<p>Why don't you consider rushing, instead? Or joining a group geared towards interests of yours that aren't academic?</p>
