As a college freshman you might feel shy, or a bit overwhelmed because college seems like a big step up in your life. There are going to be a whole bunch of confusion with finding your classes, the clubs and organizations on campus and trying to figure out what to do during your break before class because your tired of going to your dorm.
- Find a club or organization your interested in being in or learning about, this will help you meet some upperclassmen who will be able to give you the insight scoop about the campus.
- This would allow you to meet some good friends on campus which allow you to feel a bit more comfortable and confident on campus.
- You can ask these people in your club if they know where to go get some food, or if there’s anything to do here on campus (Besides club related things)
- Try-out for a schools team this would not only keep you away from gaining the “freshman 15″(weight) but you would also travel to other schools to compete and this allows you to network over there as well.
This is just the beginning, there’s so much more to do on campus that you can add to you resume.
- Join a fraternity or sorority. Do you research and you will find out that Greek Life plays a huge roll in this wold today most top companies CEO’s are greeks
- Become an orientation student, you wondering how you can put this on your resume right? well this position requires leadership skills, these leadership skill you get from training and you put in a managers position where you now have to supervise the first year students who are coming on campus. this can range from a few hundred to a couple thousands a semester.
- Work on campus, I prefer working in the student activities office because I get to know about events ahead of time, I also get to help planned them. This can range from clerical work, to supervision and or assistant to the head person in charge.
- Community Service and philanthropy work, you can add projects and philanthropy work to your resume which I’ve come to learn that employers look for when looking at a resume
There’s so much to do on campus besides the stereotypical studying and partying, college is when you create a social life that will make great networking possibilities for the future.
