What is the one thing that every new student should bring to campus?
Every new student should bring with them the willingness to put forth the amount of effort needed to be successful in college. College is meant to be a fun time, but you must also take on the responsibility of being a self-motivator and keeping your priorities in line.
Tips you would give students about getting involved are:
Although I stress the importance of getting involved in a campus organization as soon as possible; do not become a member of a particular group just for the sake of being in an organization. I made this mistake myself my first year on campus. I joined several different clubs and organizations that people told me to join just so I could say that I was “involved”, but I never actually was. Although I was a member, I didn’t quite fit in with the group and eventually dropped it entirely. So my advice to new students is to not hastily join an organization without knowing for sure that it is something that you are interested in and would thoroughly enjoy. Don’t rush it, there really is an organization out there for everybody, but it’s up to you to figure out what that organization is.
Other campus organizations in which you are involved:
Western Leaders, Treasurer of the Exercise Science Club, WKU WellU, WKU Run Club, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Campus Center, WKU Men’s Volleyball Club Team, Intramural Sports
One piece of advice you would give an incoming freshman:
Get involved in a club or other campus organization that you are for sure interested in as soon as possible. It allows you to meet a great number of people that share the same interests as you and to therefore make a lot of new friends. Being involved in campus organizations makes your college experience much more rewarding and impactful. And of course, it is a great way to boost your resume, and will set you apart from others once you graduate and are applying for a job.
