  Outside-the-classroomLearning Makes a Big Difference

  Puttinga bunch of college students in charge of a $300,000 Dance Marathon, fundraisersurely sounds a bit risky1.When you consider the fact that the money issupposed to be given to children in need of medical care, you might call theidea crazy.

  Moststudent leaders don't want to spend a large amount of time on something theycare little about, said 22-year-old University of Florida student DarrenHeitner. He was the Dance Marathon's operations officer for two years.

  YvonneFangmeyer, director of the student organization office at the University ofWisconsin, conducted a survey in February of students involved in campusorganizations2. She said the desire for friendship was the most frequentlycited reason for joining.

  At largeuniversities like Fangmeyer's, which has more than 40,000 students, thestudents first of all want to find a way to "belong in their own corner ofcampus".

  KatieRowley, a Wisconsin senior, confirms the survey's findings." I wanted tomake the campus feel smaller by joining an organization where I could not onlyget involved on campus but also find a group of friends."

  All ofthis talk of friendship, however, does not mean that students aren't thinkingabout their resumes. "I think that a lot of people do join to 'fatten uptheir resume'", said Heitner."At the beginning of my college career,I joined a few of these organizations, hoping to get a start in my leadershiproles."

  Butwithout passion student leaders can have a difficult time trying to weather thestorms that come. For example, in April, several student organizations atWisconsin teamed up3 for an event designed to educate students abouthomelessness and poverty. Student leaders had to face the problem of solvingdisagreements, moving the event because of rainy weather, and dealing with theuniversity's complicated bureaucracy.

  "Outside-ofthe classroom learning really makes a big difference", Fangmeyer said.
