Getting Involved in College

Posted by Monica

Getting involved in college is a rewarding, fun and beneficial experience. Personally, I love giving back, and especially like working with kids, so I chose to get involved by volunteering to give campus tours to middle school aged students as well as inform them about how to get to college. Some of my friends have been elected positions in Student Government and the HRE, which is the group of students who are in charge of the decisions made about living on campus. They love doing what they do, and I really love getting to talk to kids every week. I’ve made tons of friends through getting involved on campus, as well as other connections that may be beneficial. After getting involved I’ve gotten to know the University President, the Dean of Students and the Vice President of Student Affairs, all of whom I didn’t know before getting involved. In the future if I need a letter of reference for a job, it can look very impressive to have a personal letter from someone who holds such a prestigious position at a university. Getting involved in high or middle school can have similar outcomes, and I highly recommend getting as involved as possible!

Get the Most Out of College

Posted by Evelyn

If you go around colleges and ask students how they feel about college, you will get a variety of responses. However, what I think differentiates those who love college and those who may not favor it too much, is how involved they are with their campus. In high school, you are required to attend rallies, go to classes, and participate in class discussions. In college, all of that changes. You get to plan your own class schedule, decide whether you want to attend school events, and suddenly have all this free time that you didn’t have in high school.

 

Personally, I participate in clubs, lived at the dorms for two years, and even worked on campus. Because of all this, I love my experience at CSU Long Beach. My friends, especially those who commute to school, don’t feel as strongly because all they do is go to class and then go home. I know it can be tempting use your free time to sit on the couch, eat ice cream, and watch mindless television shows for hours on end, but you will be happier and your future will thank you if you just get involved. College has so much to offer, and it is up to you to get the most out of your time there. So look into what clubs interest you (most campuses have a welcome week where you can look around at the different programs and clubs on campus), join an intermural sports team, build relationships with those around you, and finally, go to class! After all, you are going to spend the next 4 years of your life there, so you might as well enjoy it!

Senior Year Opportunities: Dont Waste Your Time

Posted by Arzoo

Senior year can be one of the most stressful but memorable times of our lives. From applying to different colleges, maintaining high grades to senior events, it is one hectic year. Utilizing our time to organize and refresh ourselves can be achieved through breaks such as winter or spring breaks. This is a time where you can think about organizing your summer into a productive one. You can look for different volunteering opportunities around your community. Or use this time as an opportunity to look into the different clubs, organizations or sororities you plan on joining. Extra time like these breaks can help balance out the stress, so use your time wisely.
