  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Staff reflects on past, gives advice to new students

This is your time, freshmen.

You’re finally away from home and off on your own. We want you to have the best time you can possibly have while you are here, so the staff of The BG News knocked our heads together and thought of some advice we followed ourselves that made our time worthwhile.

The first one is obvious: get involved and do it early. Many students end up regretting not getting involved earlier. Don’t make the same mistake; start as soon as you find the chance. Becoming involved in a sport, club or other organization can help you find your place here. It gives you access to new friends, memorable adventures and various opportunities.

After being involved for a little while, you will know which ones are the perfect fit.

We know being in a new place can be tough, but leaving your comfort zone will be ideal for you. A big part of that also involves staying on campus and not going home on weekends. Many opportunities can pass you by if you leave frequently.

The University and city are full of opportunities and people; you just need the courage to reach out and take a chance.

Don’t be afraid to reach out to professors, administrators and even people you don’t know. Using these resources can be useful, as many of these individuals can become mentors or references. The Counseling Center is also a great resource if you encounter difficulties while adjusting to your new environment.

Lastly, we strongly recommend starting college with an open mind. There are people here from all over the world. You are bound to see or hear things that you have never encountered before. It can be a culture shock, but it will benefit you. The world isn’t a small place and being exposed to diverse ideas will make you a well-rounded person. After all, you are here not only to attend classes, but to grow as a person. Learning doesn’t happen just in the classroom.

You aren’t here just to attend classes and go home, you are here to have the greatest experience of your life.
