When I first arrived to CMU campus I was very nervous to join anything by myself, but I knew I wanted to be involved. But getting involved the very first semester was hard on so many levels, not just because of my nervousness, but because I had no idea how I was going to be able to balance volunteering and schoolwork, but by this second semester I have finally figured it out. Below are my current involvement and what I plan on being involved in the next couple of weeks.
Being a part of the LI has really opened me up to so many things and is part of why I was able to attend CMU. I’ve met amazing people through it and have been able to experience so many amazing things. The LI was definitely a crush for me when I was first here, it was something that helped me grow and something to lean on when I though I wouldn’t be able to stand on my own and I will forever be grateful for it.
Program Board is my most recent involvement. I just joined the beginning of the semester by attending meetings. Program Board is a great place. We’re able to work on bringing people to CMU for entertainment, talks, etc. I’ve enjoyed my time there so far and was actually named member of the month alongside my friend, Olivia.
In about two week I am going to start attending meetings of Communications Association which an RSO for COM majors/minors. I am very excited to join this because I will be able to meet and talk with other people with the same interests as me so I can make those connections and network for the future and present.
