Eight Ways to Get Into the NIC Leadership Experience

1. Join a student organization.

Getting involved in student organizations can be one of the greatest, most rewarding experiences you will have while you are in college. At NIC ASNIC has a variety of student organizations that reflect the diversity of student life on campus. By joining an organization you will have the opportunity to network and socialize with students who have similar interests. Additionally, you will interact with a wide variety of faculty, staff, and even community members depending on what you get involved in. Check out our registered student clubs and organizations today!

2. Start a new student club or organization.

If any of the current student organizations do not meet your interests and needs, we encourage you to start you own organization! Find out how you can start a new student organization.

3. Participate in a Recreational Sport at NIC

Students interested in participating in Recreational sports/ intramural activities should contact the Rec Sports office located on the lower level of the Student Union building, 208-769-3299.

4. Participate in an ongoing leadership development.

Student Government, Student Events and many other leadership opportunities are available at NIC.  It is up to you to get involved, you will not regret it.

5. Help plan student activities and student leadership opportunities.


6. Join us at the Association for College Unions International Region 14 Conference (ACUI)

North Idaho College is a member of the Association of College Unions International (ACUI). Each year, ACUI Region 14, sponsors a multi state fall conference open to all students who either hold leadership positions, work in the Union or who are seeking to become involved on our campus. Students from two and four-year colleges and universities in Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Alaska gather to learn more about leadership, communication, team building and much more.

The ACUI Region 14 conference is open to a limited number of students at NIC. Registration and hotel fees are paid for by ASNIC and Student Activities, but all students must register at the Student Activities department to attend. For more information about this opportunity, please contact the Student Activities office at (208) 769-7761 or stop by the ASNIC area located on the second floor of the Student Union.

7. Work on a service project with other student leaders.

We have ongoing opportunities for students to participate in service project retreats with others. Students leave behind the world of books and laboratories and enter communities grappling with issues as varied as urban poverty, racism, hunger, inadequate housing, and environmental damage. In so doing, these students are able to contribute to the community through their hard work. Many students have hailed the experience as life-changing and the best time they've ever had.  Find out how you can participate in our next group service project.

8. Create your own path.

If you did not find what you were looking for yet, come and talk to us about what you would like to do. We are available Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-2:30 pm in the Student Activities office at (208) 769-7761 or stop by the ASNIC area located on the second floor of the Student Union.
