Part of growth and development of any person is the improvement of social skills, so, they can be better and cooperative members of the society. Thus, it is highly encouraged that students have sports and other social events in school to encourage their social skills.
In collegiate levels, fraternities and sororities are formed where members share similar interest and form allegiance as a team.
This is also true in military organizations where their affiliation is manifested through military rings among others.
Social skills are as important as technical skills in any job. Thus, if you feel shy or simply restrained social skills, widen this in your school and next thing you know it, you are somebody else’s common buddy.
