Hi, first years!
It’s not too late to get involved! You’re probably getting used to your schedule and wondering what to do with all your free time. But don’t fear! There are plenty of clubs on campus that are looking for new members throughout the entire semester!
Check Facebook pages and get in touch with friends to see what clubs and organizations are looking for new members! Joining clubs looks great on your resume and they’re fun!
FAB usually meets once a month and we always welcome new members! The Log is always looking for new writers and editors, and clubs like the Sci-Fi club host events pretty often. Check out the complete lists of clubs online!
Some clubs are academic based, some are sports based, and some are religious based. Some are just completely random, and it’s amazing. When I was a first year I didn’t want to get involved, but after trying a few clubs I found some that I really enjoyed!
In addition to on-campus clubs, try out some off-campus opportunities! Apply for a new job or start writing for an online magazine or social media platform, like Odyssey. Odyssey communities are always looking for new people to join their teams and write about the things they’re passionate about! Join a community today.
Rather than spending all your time watching Netflix (definitely continue to watch Netflix, just limit how much you watch!), try joining a new club and making some new friends.
