As many of you know, today is the Union Expo and Activities Carnival here on campus. I think everyone should attend this event if their schedule allows it! It’s a great way to find out about the hundreds of clubs and organizations on campus. If you’re looking to get involved, the Union is your place to be tonight between 6 and 8. Another great reason to check out the Carnival is the amazing people you will meet. Students with passions about everything from Harry Potter to skydiving and beyond will be milling about and mingling.
One organization I am involved in is Circle K and we recently had a “Kiwanis Family Picnic” where we socialized and planned ahead for this year. I also was sent home with more fried chicken than I could carry! This club is just another example of how connected K-State is to the community. One of the best things about getting involved on campus is the additional support you receive from not only your peers but your faculty supervisor as well. College can get overwhelming and establishing a support system is a great way to ensure your success as well was sanity.
It’s not easy to work booths like you will see tonight so make an attempt to say “Hi” and get to know people working. Don’t be afraid to ask questions! That’s why they are there! If you can’t make it to the event tonight, check out http://wow.k-state.edu for more Week of Welcome events!
