Getting Involved At FGCU Helped Me To Love My School Even More

In my first year at FGCU, I wasn't too involved on campus. I went to class, made the occasional stop at Starbucks in the library, then went back to my dorm for the remainder of my day. It's not that I didn't want to do more on campus, I just was too nervous to reach out to anyone.

However, at the start of my sophomore year, I decided it was time to get involved. And boy, am I glad I did. I applied for a few positions on campus and I'm so grateful that I was given the opportunity to currently serve as the Vice President of Outreach for FGCU's Student Organizations Council and Marketing Coordinator for FGCU's Homecoming Council.

Through both of these positions, I have been able to meet so many amazing peers, advisors, and faculty members. I've been able to work hands-on with so many of FGCU's organizations and get to know our student body even better. I get to plan and attend events that bring so many people together, and best of all, I get to help students get involved, too.

These opportunities and positions helped me to not only get more involved on campus but to also love FGCU even more than I already did. Through getting involved on campus, I have been able to see FGCU through a different view. I've been able to meet so many amazing people in the FGCU community and I've been able to see behind-the-scenes of so many awesome events at FGCU!

I didn't think it was possible for me to love FGCU any more than I already did, but I certainly found a way. Getting involved on campus opened my eyes to even more beauty at my school, especially all the beauty of our FGCU community.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
