It’s mind blowing to realize that I am already in my fourth year of college. I can still remember, like it was yesterday, when I first arrived to campus. Some people I had first met at UConn gave me advice to get involved in many organizations on the campus for the purposes of staying busy, and to have the opportunity to meet new people.
Well I believe it’s safe to say that I took that advice seriously. Visiting my first involvement fair, I had signed up for 20 different clubs that were interesting to me. Obviously I didn’t join all of them but there were a few that I did. These clubs introduced me to many people and created great experiences. One of the first clubs I joined was the Outing Club. There were many other students I met at the time whom shared my same interest in hiking, and it was an awesome time going on weekend trips. Experiences like that are the reward for taking the initiative in getting involved.
After that first semester, I wanted to keep getting involved and meeting more students. I decided to join different organizations the next semester and kept this trend for every semester I have been here. This semester, as a senior I decided to join the ski club, and UConn endurance. One of the most rewarding experiences is being able to see campus life from all aspects. For example, I became involved with the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity, and UConn transportation allowing me to be part of the campus community through multiple perspectives. The most important reason for my involvement is making memories that I will keep forever. One set of moments will stick with me after college is going on our annual winter trip with the UConn Turf Club. Every year we have a blast on the trip learning more about the turf industry and enjoy the southern city we visit. So far we have been to San Diego, Orlando, and San Antonio. Each trip builds Continue reading
