“There’s nothing to do on campus,” is something that almost every student at IIT has heard or said at some point during their time here. It’s said so much that it seems to almost be considered public knowledge by students; many talk of IIT’s stellar academics, but every time they do they also mention how IIT seems dead and that the quality of life is low. Still to this day, many quote an out of date article which rated IIT as one of the most depressing campuses in America.
The irony of all this is that even though many students swear by these statements, these statements and ideas couldn’t be further from the truth. Almost every day a different student organization is hosting an event, and almost every night people are hanging out and having a great time on campus. Right now, 1% of the students at IIT are having 99% of the fun, and it’s time to change that. It’s time for every single IIT student to have fun. It’s time to turn the 1% into the 100%.
As you read this article, a multitude of student organizations are coming together and kicking off the 1(00)% Campaign. The idea of this campaign is to show the IIT student body the plethora of activities for them to take advantage of, and drive home the fact that no matter your hobby and no matter what you are interested in, there is an organization that you can become a part of.
