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.

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. 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

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball.

(Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article. A significant number of you guys get tired of being bench jockeys and transfer to D III's for playing time and the ability to be a stud player in a small pond.)
