Background of the study
Colleges and universities have organizations. Collegiate organization is an educational and social entity that managed to meet a need or to pursue collective goals. On college campuses, one of the major factors that would help student’s involvement and development is to participate in organizations. This factor will strengthen the capacity of a student of being a leader in his or her nature. It equips students with the congruence, commitment, collaboration, common purpose, and controversy with civility, citizenship, change and consciousness (Dugan, J. P., & Komives, S. R., 2007). It plays an important role in the collegiate experience. Collegiate organization’s importance is vital. According to a 1993 article of Alexander Astin, almost any type of student involvement in college positively affects student learning and development. Collegiate organizations provide a setting to become involved and to interact with other students, thus leading to increased learning and enhanced development. It is the one of the most importance source of influence a student’s effectiveness and personal development. Student involvement in collegiate organizations also positively impacts educational attainment. Ernest T. Pascarella and Patrick T. Terenzini's 1991 research indicates that extracurricular involvement in collegiate organizations has a positive and great impact on attaining a bachelor's degree and on educational aspirations upon the students. Students engaged actively are more likely to have higher educational aims than passive students.
