School activities are a great way for students to have fun and unwind from school stress.
CSUSB’s main website has an event list towards the bottom of the front page that shows upcoming events and activities on campus, as well as the posters all over Santos Manuel Student Union.
“The Student Union is a great place for students to get information about school activities,” said Kinesiology major and cheerleader Thelma Robles.
“There are literally posters everywhere and a desk to go to for information about pretty much anything,” added Robles.
These activities allow students to get to know each other and create a network while maintaining school spirit.
“I definitely think students should participate in school pride. It’s like showing where we are from and who we are,” said Robles.
There are many events being held this week, including the second annual Arts and Music Festival on Friday, May 2.
This event will have food, a fabulous art display, and music performed by local and known musicians, according to the Arts and Music Festival website.
Students will be encouraged to meet each other and build connections while exploring the different events.
This activity should be fun for anyone interested in meeting other people, viewing artwork, or listening to live musicians.
If you have a break during classes and are ahead on homework, feel free to go to the pub, game room, food court, or TV room (bay room) in the Student Union and make friends.
An important skill to nearly any job is being able to build and maintain relationships, meet new people and have fun.
“One of the benefits to participating in school activities is you get to know a lot of people, you can network with professors and build future relationships,” said Communication student and cheerleader Essence Murphy.
If you have homework to do but are also looking to interact with other people during breaks, the Osher Adult Re-entry Center (OARC) is the place for you.
“I come to the San Manuel Student Union every break and go to the OARC downstairs,” Murphy added. “I can literally go in the Union, see all my friends, and knock out my homework at the same time. It’s like killing two birds with one stone.”
Stop making college any more difficult or boring than it already is and make the most of it.
