Since visiting Weber State University just over two years ago, I knew it was a place that I really wanted to attend and get involved with. My other siblings always attended college while living at home and I knew that I wanted my college experience to be different than what they had. So I actively sought out to change my college experience by getting involved from the get-go.
Through being an Admissions Ambassador I have learned a lot about organizations on campus and I have always wanted to figure out a way that I could get involved with more organizations on campus. The WSU Student Association offers such a wide variety of services to current students, that I knew this would only be the next smart move. The Student Association really helps to serve the students by providing activities to enhance their education. By showing the opportunities for them to get involved in campus and allows them to realize the impact they can have on the community that Weber State University serves.
Being a part of such an amazing organization would so rewarding for myself and allows me to continue my goal, which is to get students to realize how great the University really is, and show them that getting involved can only increase their college experience. Even if it is as simple as sitting on a committee or getting involved in 10 different organizations, it can change how you see the University and your life experiences. I want to be able to continue my goal through the Student Association so I can make a larger impact on the WSU students. Not only can I help to serve the students, but also, the association allows me to increase my learning curve by learning how I can apply things from the classroom to different organizations. Creating a comprehensive learning plan for my career.
Through all of my leadership and involvement in high school and at Weber State, I have learned several things about leadership and how I can do more to help students. I have worked in several organizations that directly link me to making that next step to the association. If I am not sure how to do something, I am willing to not only learn, but to master the task at hand. I am not a person that lets little details slip; I want it to be right! Through the association I am sure that I will learn how I can take my Public Relations/Advertising classes at WSU and apply them to my work within the association for the benefit of the students.
In all honestly I run a hectic schedule that takes a lot of planning each week. For the most part I spend my morning in class, and my afternoons at work on campus. Often planning Wednesday’s as my meeting days for my clubs and organizations I am currently involved with. My work is very lenient and understands that often times I will be taking off work to stay involved with campus. As long as I am able to get it all done, they are okay with me being absent. I spend my nights doing homework and I use my weekends as breaks from school, and hang out with colleagues and friends. Next semester I understand that school will only be getting harder now that I am in my program so I will be taking 12 credits to allow for me to stay in my two clubs, still be an Admissions Ambassador, hopefully work as a part of the Student Association, and still carry my part-time job on campus. I love being busy and that has always been who I am. I can thrive among the stress and the product will always be the same, great.
Changing my college experience and still be able to help and serve others has been a wonderful experience and I hope that through the Student Association I will be able to further my college experience.
