You’re never too old to be a newbie

I guess it just takes me a while for me to figure out what I want to do.

In high school, I didn’t start joining clubs and activities until my sophomore and junior year.  In college, I didn’t declare my major and minor until April of my sophomore year.  And last night, though I’ve been studying journalism and writing for the Duquesne Duke for the better part of a year, I finally attended my first meeting for the Duquesne chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ).  It was a great time and I’m glad I went, but that’s not the point of this post.

For those of you planning on coming to Duquesne next year, you’re going to hear a lot about getting involved, finding activities on campus, getting into greek life, etc.  And it’s definitely important to find an activity or two or three you like at Duquesne.  However, it’s not a bad thing if you don’t find anything interesting for your first semester or so, or even if you find a group you don’t like and change your mind.  You have plenty of choices and plenty of time to figure out what interests you.
