Join A Club (Or Two)

The new semester brings even more opportunities for you to get involved! If you are looking to meet new people, learn new skills, or just have some more fun, consider trying out a new student organization. Campus Life Night is the perfect opportunity for you to find out more information about how you can get involved.

Take Care of Yourself

Maybe 2020 is the year you are able to take a step back, reduce your stress, and prioritize your wellbeing. College life can be fast-paced and it’s easy to neglect yourself when you get so busy with other activities. Make a goal to listen to yourself and utilize the counseling resources on campus if needed.
