Get Involved

Students who get involved are more likely to find success in careers after college - and we know that is true in our program. The students who we see go on to successful EM careers are the same students we always saw around the halls, participating in field trips, research projects, and in the IAEM Student Chapter. So find something that interests you and sign up! It can go a long way.
