Getting involved on campus can seem overwhelming, especially as a first-year student. As incoming college students, it can become difficult to navigate getting involved with several organizations and balancing school work.

Therefore, navigating making your mark in college and getting involved can seem challenging, and we are here to help you!
Getting Involved On Campus & Exploring Your Interests
We have many talents, many desires, and a dozen interests. College is the perfect time to explore those interests and learn an abundance of things before getting into our careers. That said, it is important to take advantage of college activities due to the opportunities they can teach you.
But first, your focus may be on how to get involved. In order to get involved in the college experience, you must acknowledge that you will be tired and have days of low energy. Embrace those times.
First, you must learn time management, create a weekly schedule, plan your time of involvement, study, and hang out plans beforehand. Once you recognize those things, getting involved will be a breeze.
Start Getting To Know Others
Getting involved starts with simply networking with those around you. Get to know your peers and classmates walking the campus with you and sitting in the cafe. Universities are impactful.
Everyone has their own brand; some have already started their own business in college. You never know who may need you or how you may need them. This plays a huge role in your involvement. The more people you connect with, the more involved you will be.
