Do This:

Visiting these places on campus can help you to better establish yourself and your future!

  1. Visit The Point in Marano Campus Center. Become a true Laker by getting involved. Find out what the Student Association has to offer you. Don’t see a club that interests you? Well The Point can help you create your own.
  2. Know where to get help. Visit Mary Walker for a variety of health related issues and topics including how to handle colds and the flu and sign up for counseling sessions. They can also aid you in seeking outside resources like the ones dealing with sexual assault and student conduct.
  3. Read signage. Not only does this campus offer a plethora of posters with upcoming events, we also have televisions running advertisements. Who knows you may find something you love!
  4. Go to hall events. Sometimes, nothing can seem more silly and pointless than going to hall events. However, because of the information you can get, their ability to create a social atmosphere, and the opportunity for free stuff can all be major draws.
  5. Meet With Your Advisor. This one should be a given but meeting with your advisor to better set up a path to graduation is key. Making these bonds and connections from the beginning will likely enhance your windows of opportunity in the long run.
