Did the fall semester get past you? Were there things that you wanted to do, but did not have the opportunity to complete? Did you learn about opportunities or organizations when it was too far into the semester? Spring semester provides another chance to get involved and take advantage of the opportunities you missed in the fall semester. Each semester offers new opportunities to engage and try new things. If there are things you were unable to accomplish, participate in, or finish, use the new semester as a fresh start.
Each semester also offers a new opportunity for change. There will be students who change universities, graduate from school, or rearrange responsibilities due to schedule demands. These changes will provide possible new opportunities for jobs, involvement, and exposure. So, do not be afraid to ask about a vacancy, seek membership, or dive deeper into new found passions.
Here are a few ways you can get involved:
1. Attend Rush and learn more about Greek Life on campus.
2. Visit the Work-Study office for possible jobs
3. Go to an organization fair and see what options are available on campus.
4. Talk to a professor or your advisor about opportunities to get involved in the department.
5. Reach out to a classmate that is already involved and learn about any upcoming opportunities.
6. Consider local government and run for a position in your classes election. Help with someone else’s campaign or serve as an election judge.
7. Apply to be an RA for the fall semester. Applications are due early spring semester and may require a 2 or 3 step interview process.
8. Read posters and flyers on campus for possible information about events and opportunities.
