Get Involved on Campus

College is the first time most students are out on their own without their parent’s guidance. Once you step foot on your college campus, it’s a great idea to start thinking about ways you can get involved with your new school. There are TONS of ways
that you can get involved on your campus. Everything from intramural sports to joining a club or even joining a frat or sorority.

Most colleges have a wide variety of clubs you can join. You can join a serious club or something a little different like the people watching club that’s found at the University of Minnesota

There are many unique clubs that are found on college campuses like the concrete canoe club that is found at the University of Wisconsin-Madison or the Squirrel Club at the University of Michigan. Joining a club or organization allows you to feel more connected to your school but you have to be willing to seek out these experiences in order to get the full benefits that a college campus can offer. 

Most importantly, getting involved on campus creates a sense of community. College is meant to be shared with other students who are going through this same new experience just like you. Getting involved on campus can also help you figure out more about yourself. It can help identify your strengths and weaknesses and build confidence in yourself. 

Being busy in college is perfectly okay. Try and immerse yourself in the full college experience and live it up. College is a very short time in the big picture of life and many times your best memories are from your college days. College can also be a time of experimenting. Trying something new every week is a great start to taking a step out of your comfort zone and finding out who you truly are.

Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need

History of The College Dorm Room

For centuries now, the college experience has long been associated with living in dormitories. From the first university in the United States the modern colleges and universities of today, students have had the opportunity and experience of living with one another at a pivotal time in their lives. All students in dorms are relatively young, typically between 18 and 23 years old, and all of them have a goal of getting a degree in mind. It's an experience that defines those first moments in an adult life, and that helps students learn the importance of responsibility, the benefit of independence and the joys of student camaraderie. However, while the general experience has remained the same, the dorms themselves have changed a lot over the years.
