It’s finally that time of the year again! The time to get a fresh start, and for newcomers to get started! The Student Life Fair is for all the clubs, organizations and various departments present to themselves, and let us decide what we want to get involved in.
The options range from large clubs to work-study in departments, like in Admissions or SFS. Chris Conzen, the Assistant Dean of Student Life, keeps emphasizing just how important it is to get involved at the college. At a non-traditional campus like LIM, this is definitely one of the ways of getting to know our fellow students and staff.
Below you can see the list of the clubs, organizations and departments that have registered to be present on Monday during the lunch hour:
Student-Alumni Council (SAC)
International Student Club/Marketing, Management & Finance
Student Life Activities Board (Slab)
Institutional Advancement (I.A.)
Black Retail Action Group (BRAG)
Student Life/Student Affairs
Resident Hall Council (RHC)
The Lexington Line
Student Financial Services/ S.A.L.T
Graduate Activities and Programming Board (GAP)
Student Leadership Council (SLC)
National Retail Federation Student Association (NRFSA)
The Department of Experiential Education & Career Management (EECM)
Fashion Show Production
On Monday, I will be sitting with Professor Banavara and promoting the International Student Club, the club that I’ve been the most involved with since I first got here. During Orientation, and at any given moment, mentors will tell you just how important it is to get involved. I was a person who did not want to get involved as I would believed it was better to have more time on my hands ti study for classes.
However, after having worked as an International Student Ambassador, and a mentor, I highly regret not doing more, sooner. I feel like I missed out on a lot of the fun and potential friendships, as I didn’t take the necessary steps. If you look at the list, you see there’s a little something for everyone.
Student Life also emphasizes that if you feel like something is missing, just go downstairs and propose an idea for a new club. Get involved and get the best possible LIM College experience. As Barney Stinson says, “Whatever you do in this life, it's not legendary, unless your friends are there to see it” and this is the easiest way to get those friends.
