As you are moving into your home away from home in the residence halls keep in mind that you can make friends in the most unexpected places.
Some of you will come to college with friends from your high school and some of you will move into UC not knowing a single soul. With that being said, no matter where you meet, all your friends start off as strangers. You aren’t alone.
Find your friends, branch out, and realize that some of those strangers around you are about to become your best friends in college!
Dude, Where’s My Class?
ROAR Guides were once again active this past Sunday for their annual “Dude, Where’s My Class?” Tour. Pictured above is just a small group of the guides that came out to help incoming first years find their classes.
This ranged from them showing them on campus maps where they need to go all the way to personal tours to their classes around campus.
Once again, UC is lucky to have students and leaders like them to continue giving back to the incoming students.
McMicken Commons is alive today with the Stunt Jump, Mechanical Shark, and an inflatable slide!
We even have the Bearcat mascot jumping off of the Stunt Jump!
I can tell you from personal experience that it is a lot of fun (I’m even afraid of heights!) so if you’re near campus today before 3pm you should head over!
If you haven’t seen her around campus I am happy to introduce you to our Student Body President for 2014-2015, Christina Beer! She is a 4th year student that is studying Information Systems and Finance and is part of the Lindner Honors-PLUS Program and the University Honors Program!
Within her wide range of accomplishments, her favorite memory at UC was when she heard “With 50.9% of the vote your next Student Body President and Vice President are Chirstina Beer and Shivam Shah!” Even with all the responsibility that comes with this role, it is an amazing accomplishment because she is the first female elected in the past 21 years!
She mentioned that her biggest challenge is the fact that as Student Body President she can only pick a few key projects to work on. While there are so many incredible initiatives to work on, it would pull her too thin to take them all on herself. One of the main things she has noticed though is how student-focused all of the faculty at UC are.
Her advice to incoming freshman is to take full advantage of everything that UC has to offer. Try something new that you didn’t think you ever would, leave a legacy at UC that you can be proud of!
Her closing to us was some advice to those considering UC and the incoming students that we have this Fall:
”To those that are considering UC, I can honestly say there is no other place that offers such a unique education. You won’t regret it. To those that are entering this fall, welcome! To those that are returning students, faculty and staff, and our alums, welcome back to the #HottestCollegeinAmerica.”
