11 Reasons To Join A Student Organization
Amanda Miles

Every Week of Welcome you see them: tables upon tables filled with colorful pictures, props, and tri-fold boards manned by people handing you things in an attempt to join a student organization. From Greek Life to academic based clubs to everything in between, student organizations play a major role in the college experience. Here are 11 reasons why you should get involved!

1. There is an organization for almost everything

From Greek Life to academic organizations to individual interest groups, you're bound to find something you love!

2. Student organizations give you instant friends

Being surrounded by people with similar interests as you gives you instant communication topics and leads to faster friend-making!

3. Being a club member teaches responsibility

Going to meetings, gaining volunteer hours, and helping plan events all make you a more responsible (and more reliable) person!

4. Being a club officer looks awesome on a resume

You know what looks good on resumes? Leadership experience. You know an easy way to get leadership experience? Become a club officer!

5. You'll never be bored because your organization is always doing something

From meetings to events to hanging out with other club members, there's always something going on!

6. You have more opportunity to meet people with similar interests

Organizations really are the best places to meet people who love the same things you love!

7. You get better at time management

When you only have an hour between class and club, you get really good at using that hour productively!

8. You learn to say "no" when you're overwhelmed

Don't be like Spiderman. Have a blast and join a student organization!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
