What is the one thing that every new student should bring to campus?
A Bible! As everyone knows, college is where the young and chained become wild and free. Although "living the college life is fun" it is not always the best option. By bringing your Bible, you have the ultimate road map to life. I cannot tell you how many times I've been overwhelmed and turned to reading to get me through. God is always there for us, and through reading His word, He strengthens us, gives us hope, and empowers us to achieve new heights. Now, am I a perfect person; by all means NO. I have my share of fun. College is the social capital of your life. You will probably never have the opportunity to network with more people and develop lifelong friends. So by all means, have fun! Maybe party a little! Just bring that Bilble to lean on and reference.
Tips you would give students about getting involved are:
Getting involved is on e fo the best things you can do in college. You build relationships, network with individuals you would have never met, and make lifelong friends. Being involved means more than just that though. It means giving back. It means getting out there and getting dirty. It means growing in yourself, as you grow in a team. Getting involved is a lot of work; however, it is the most beneficial opportunity college provides.
Other campus organizations in which you are involved:
I'm involved in Health Occupation Students of America through the Area Health Education Center (AHEC) regional office. I also serve on the AHEC advisory board as the student representative.
One piece of advice you would give an incoming freshman:
Keep your head on straight. There are going to be a lot of things coming at you this first year you have never experienced before. Just keep your focus on all the right things and you should do fine. Enjoy it though; I mean you are in college. Get out there and have fun. Meet new people. Make those lifelong friends. College will be some of the best years of your life whether you realize it or not. Make the best of it. Just know your limits and stay focused on graduation. Cause in the end, your number one goal at the end of your college career is to walk across that stage in Diddle Arena and shake Gary Ransdell's hand.
