As we come back for the second half of the semester, we’re all going to have a lot on our plates. Some classes still have midterms scheduled, others will start
assigning final projects. This is an exciting time to be on campus. The leaves
are changing color and there’s a buzz in the air about the upcoming basketball season. The renovations of the chapel are moving along and the campus is
continually improving.

The message we have this week is this: It’s not too late to get involved and be a part of something you’re interested in.

No matter what year you are, first-year through senior, you can still get
involved on campus in a way that will better yourself and the community around you.

College is a time where you can try new things and join clubs you weren’t a part of before, it’s a place where people are able to find facts out about themselves that they didn’t know before. Maybe you would really enjoy a position in CAB, or maybe you would enjoy a trip with the Outdoor Adventure Club.

You can’t find out unless you try.

There are countless opportunities available on this campus that you may not even know about.

Sometimes you just have to take a look.

Getting involved on campus is one of the best ways you can use your time while you’re here.

It’ll provide you with rewarding experiences you didn’t even know you would enjoy. You’ll learn a lot about yourself and you’ll make new friends in the process. It’s really a no-brainer.

So this week, if you feel like getting involved in an organization, do it. Plenty of organizations would love to bring in new members and all it takes is simply reaching out and expressing interest.

The worst case scenario is that you end up not liking the club and don’t join. That’s not so bad, is it?

It’s worth the time. Who knows, maybe you’ll find something you love.
