An Open Letter To My SVSU Orientation Students

Dear Baby Cardinals,

You've finally completed the final steps of becoming a cardinal. You registered for classes, learned about the various ways to get involved and hopefully made a friend or two along the way. Today is the first day of years of endless opportunities, you have the power to become someone you never thought you would. You have the power to change your mind, your major, and who you want to become. Here's a few things I hope you took away from Orientation.

I hope you had fun! Starting a new chapter in your life should be one of the most exciting things, but remember it's okay to be unsure and nervous. I hope you enjoyed the games we played, learning the fight song and meeting new people. The best part of my job is being able to pass on the cardinal pride I have into you. To hope that you are just as proud to be a cardinal as I am.

I hope you made a friend today! It's not always easy going into a group of people you don't know. But I hope that you found a person to call a friend. Don't be afraid to talk to the people in your classes, on your floor or even your professors. The more people you meet and become friends with the happier you will be.

I hope you found at least one RSO you want to join. Whether it's a club sport, to the optimistic club, to thinking about the possibility of Greek life! There are so many different groups on campus that do a multitude of different things. Go on the Engage page and explore! Don't be afraid to ask questions to me or other orientation leaders!

I hope your excited! College is a big step from the cost to level of difficulty in classes. I hope that you are excited for what's to come! To join a club, go to a football game, to meet your professors!

As you start you first year of college, don't be afraid to say hi if you see me in the halls or around campus! Being an orientation leader is the best job! And nothing excited us more than seeing our students fly!

Have a great year!

- Haley

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
