People go to a university for a variety of reasons: it might be for a degree, or it is simply the next step in life, or your parents expect it of you, or you want to make the most out of life. Whatever the reason, the university experience is different for everyone. While it is common to hear people say that school will be the best years of your life, you can make your student years in a university.
During your university years, you have the chance to taste-test different programs, learn from experts in diverse fields and explore your passions to tailor your academic and career paths. A university allows you make those connections because everyone knows everyone in one way or another. Putting your head in your books all day, every day fulfills only one part of your university experience.
When you’re at a university, you’re part of a far bigger community than just the student one. Nearly all universities offer you the chance to volunteer in your local area. Your university will provide you with countless ways to do something unique and valuable in your local community. Another great way to get involved in your local community is to get a job. Universities’ careers services will often advertise appropriate part-time jobs on their websites and around campus. As long as its balanced with your academic work, a job can be a fantastic way of supplementing your student loan and gaining experience to write about on your CV.
Participating in university life is not only fun, it also helps you build some great skills that will be useful for your future career. All organizations are student-led, meaning that students are responsible for all prioritizing, planning and budgeting. Some clubs even hold elections, complete with campaigns, for key positions. These all offer incredible leadership experience.
Enjoy playing music or singing? Consider becoming a member of your university’s band or choir. I also encourage you to not just restrict yourself to campus activities. Your local community is a great resource for opportunities to get engaged and contribute to a greater cause while doing something you love.
In other words, as a university student, you essentially have freedom over how you want to spend your day, every day. It can be challenging to manage things on your own but also exciting as you begin to figure out who you are or who you want to be. A university is the time when you realize your independence, mature, learn invaluable lessons and begin to identify your own personal values and beliefs.
There are so many ways to get involved at universities and college campuses. Just putting in a little extra effort can make a huge impact on your student life, and help you to take full advantage of PG courses in a university and its experience also.
