Get involved!

Posted on September 13th, 2008 by Laura Herrejón

Time is flying… and I can’t believe it has been already 4 weeks since my arrival to the United States coming from Mexico this summer.  I feel like I have been living here for a longer time than that. My life has been going to every direction, including friendships, activities, the daily routine, etc. I’m actually even more involved than I planned to be at the beginning of this semester.

This semester, I decided to write for the University’s newspaper, and I have 2 columns published so far. The effect that writing this column has had on people is actually better than I expected. I went to a party last weekend and when I introduced myself to someone, he already knew who I was from my column, and he even commented on it about it. In the period of 1 week, I got comments from professors, friends, and people I did not even know, which made me realize that sometimes we have bigger consequences in this world than we think we do.

I am also involved in the Delta Epsilon Chi, which is a college division of DECA, and it belongs to the Indiana chapter in the business field. Being involved in DEX (Delta Epsilon Chi) will open doors for me for future business related activities. As a matter of fact, they organize competitions and you can end up travelling all around the United States by simply showing your business skills.

Getting involved in campus activities can really help you to grow as a student, an individual, and as a person because of your personal qualities. Now, I can say that I am an international student living college life to its fullest.
