As president of my school's French Club, I'm constantly coming up with ideas to keep the club fresh and attract new members. With so many different student organizations around campus, you have to go above and beyond to make yours stand out. Here are eight tips to help you make your student organization the hottest club on campus!

1. Advertise!

Put flyers all over campus. Post all about your meetings on social media. Make announcements in relevant classes. Do anything you can to make sure everybody knows that your club exists.

2. Be active on social media.

Once you've gained followers, make sure you keep them! Post frequently on your club's Facebook to keep both current members and alumni engaged and up-to-date with the club's events.

3. Host a mixer with another club.

One great way to encourage new people to join your organization is to reach out to other organizations. Host a joint meeting so that members of both clubs can see what the other club is all about.

4. Perform community outreach.

Bring your club off campus to help serve your school's community. This is a great way to gain a positive reputation, not only for your club, but for your whole school.

5. Network with professors.

Many student organizations have a faculty advisor, but it helps to reach out to other professors in the department. They can help spread the word about your club and help you plan some awesome events.

6. Invite guest speakers.

Even if your club isn't academic, having guest speakers at your meetings is still a great way to network.

7. Branch out.

Instead of meeting in an empty classroom every week, get off campus for a change of pace. My club meets every other week at a coffee shop right off campus. It's a great way to shake things up every once in a while.

8. Provide food.

Nothing attracts college students to a campus event like the words "Free Food". Take advantage of this.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
