Happy New Year!
I always find it funny (and rather alarming) that come January of a new year, one must already not only be looking ahead to the upcoming term, but also must be considering the upcoming summer and even, the school year after that! It may seem conflicting when you consider your newly-made “live in the moment” New Year’s resolution, but there just doesn’t seem to be a way to avoid planning ahead, especially as a student!
I just wanted to use this post as a chance to highlight some of the great oppourtunities you can begin to investigate for the summer and upcoming school year! I know I’m inspired by other people’s experiences, so here are some great ways to get involved on campus in both the summer and the 2015-2016 school year!
Success Leader Positions
There are so many roles available for students of all years, from all faculties! I’ve been a Peer Mentor for first years, a 2.0 Peer Mentor, as well as a Leadership Chair, and all 3 roles have been awesome! I’ve met so many great people through these programs!
