One thing we admire here at STC-ETC is student drive. STC may be a professional society—but that doesn't exclude our future professionals. We absolutely love when students are driven and actively pursue ways to make themselves better professionals. Joining STC already puts you a step ahead, giving you opportunities for education, service, recognition, and networking—but as a liaison, you'll be more prepared for working with others and making things happen.

Oh, and did we mention students get a discounted membership?
