As the few weeks have flown by between Spring Break and mid-terms my posting has seen better days. Yet, I report that in my absence much has been accomplished. It appears that I committed a type-1 Freshman error by going out and becoming involved in way too much on campus. And I must say I am loving it.
The minute you arrive Freshman year you will soon be bombarded by every club, service organization and team under the sun looking for you to join their cause. From knitting club to Davidson Outdoors to the curry club (yes a club about one’s love of curry) there will be way more clubs than you will ever have time for. Naturally, you will proceed in signing up to join every single one.
I made this same mistake last year. I still get my Tuesday food club email (I have never been to a meeting), my Friday night film club announcement (once again my attendance is a nil), and my monthly gluten-free support club newsletter (I do not know how this one happened, I am neither gluten-free nor know anyone who is). But with the start of the second half of my second year I have decided to change this faux-involved attitude. Over the past few weeks I have been elected to serve on the Honor Council, selected as the 2012-2013 Union Board Film’s Chair, and amped up my frequency of tour guiding. And though it may be too early to call, I am loving it.
College should be a time when you get to explore new things. And that is what Davidson has allowed me. There are enough activities for one to join that its easy, though not advisable, to forget that you even have classes. But alas, I must run off. It’s time for the gluten-free pizza party to start.
