Being involved on campus has given me my second family and my home-away-from-home. I was a member of Residence Life for four years, and I gained my best and lifelong friends from it. Getting involved on campus gives you a purpose and a place. I strongly advise and encourage everyone to get involved in at least one thing because it will change your life. You will meet so many new people and have the opportunity to engage with many different types of people. Organizations, clubs, and activities also help you grow as a person. I’ve gained extremely valuable life lessons from experiences in my organizations and being surrounded by many different personalities.
