New School Year, New Start

Editorial Opinion

Another school year has begun, which means new classes, new friends and, above all else, new opportunities.
If you didn’t like the way last year went, felt like something was missing from your college experience or you’re just up for a new adventure, the new school year provides you with just the opportunity to change your experience for the better.
And now, during the early weeks of the semester, is the absolute best time to make those changes.
Commit yourself to trying new things. Talk to people who you’ve never talked to before. Make new friends. Explore the Saint Joseph community and see what’s out there (plus, there are discounts for MWSU students out there, folks).
Also, dedicate yourself to getting involved. There are plenty of ways for you to do that. One solution is to join a club or two on campus. From student government, to fraternities and sororities, to religious, political, hobby-related, or just social clubs, there is a place for you to get involved, make new friends and have an impact on your college community.
Furthermore, this November provides a great opportunity to get involved on a larger scale with your community with one of the most important elections of your lifetime. Talk about the issues surrounding this election with your friends and family. Watch the news and upcoming presidential debates. Get informed and when the time comes, vote.
Lastly, make the most of your time here. College is exciting, eye-opening experience. Each year has the possibility to be something more than the year before it. So, don’t just sit around and let this school year or those opportunities pass you by. Grab ahold of them, hold on tight, and have some adventures along on the way. You owe it to yourself and your community to do so.
