Tips for Getting Involved

In my last post I talked about the importance of getting involved. Getting involved on campus gives you the best opportunities. By getting involved you will create great memories, make amazing friends, and build a resume that will help you stand out! Abington has a lot to offer in terms of not only diverse clubs but also different events for everyone. Going to these events can be more entertaining then sitting

Last Years Involvement Fair!

in the café during breaks between classes and it helps you find people that you have common interests with.

Tips for getting involved:

1.)   Find the right fit. On the day of the involvement fair (August 28th and 29th) don’t be afraid to sign up for several different clubs that may interests you. Go to a couple different clubs meetings and then choose 1 or 2 that you feel comfortable in. If you miss the involvement fair email the club president and ask for more information!

2.)   Keep going. Once you skip one meeting it gets harder to go back because you think you missed something. If you do have to miss a meeting don’t hesitate to email someone asking what you missed and then you won’t feel out of place.

3.)   Get more involved. Go to all the events and hangouts with your club. This is where you start to make friends that you’ll have all through college and hopefully after. Sometimes it’s hard to feel like a part of the group but by going to the events you will begin to fit right in!

4.)   Take on leadership roles. It may be scary but take on more responsibility. Offer to run an event. By doing this you’ll get to know more people and you’ll learn a lot.

5.)   Enjoy it. It goes by fast. Trust me.

Here is a website with a list of clubs that we offer on campus http://psasga.wix.com/sga-2#!__club-pages. For more information you can also contact the Director of Student Life, Gina Kaufman at gxd22@psu.edu.

Just don’t forget…the earlier you get involved the better!
