With next semester coming around the bend, a lot of students are deciding on classes they want to take, possibly choosing new roommates, even preparing to study abroad in another country. Everyone will be extremely busy sorting everything out for next year.
But, has anyone thought about trying out a new club or hobby, come next semester? Since schedules will be completely different when the 19th of January rolls around, it’s the perfect opportunity to try out something new and find a fun activity to immerse you in for the remainder of the school year. Clubs can help students find an outlet for their extremely busy and time-consuming amounts of homework. Being cooped up inside your room or the library is a nuisance if not given a break after a while.
Student organizations are always fun and engaging to be a part of, so meeting up with a club once a while can be the perfect distraction from workload you must handle. It’ll keep you away from work only for a little while, and you can go back into your assignments refreshed and ready to go.
Participating in a club or an activity is also a great chance to meet some new friends. With over 6,000 students at U.N.H., it’s not always easy meeting people with similar interests, especially if you’re a freshman trying to find your niche in the school. Every club you join offers the chance to meet someone who wants to be your friend in and out of the club. You never know if you’ll meet your new lab partner, your best friend, or even your significant other. Getting involved with the school is a great way to meet new people and find your best of friends in college.
For those who are still trying to find out their interests and hobbies for life, experimenting with different clubs can help you find out what you like and don’t like. You could be a pre-med student who is drawn to biology club since your career revolves around you understanding the human body. It also doesn’t hurt to try clubs that you may not have thought you’d be good at.
You could be like me, a dental hygiene major who found journalism and writing for The Charger Bulletin to be engaging and fun to be a part of (shameless plug). It never hurts to get your feet wet and try everything that sounds fun and exciting and figure out what interests you above all else.
College is without a doubt insanely busy with school work taking up a lot of time, but to go an entire semester without being a part of a fun club on campus would be a waste. U.N.H. has over 140 clubs for every student to try out and be a part of.
