Love UR Club
Don't be a starving student, join a club!
January 27th, 2020, by Sierra Hart, chemistry major and
2019-2020 College of Science student senator
I was fortunate enough to celebrate this last Thanksgiving- not only once- but twice. It’s always a treat to be surrounded by both old and new friends to swap stories and celebrate the end of the semester. This event was just one of the many I’ve been a part of during my time spent in the Chemistry Club.
When I started at Weber State, I was fresh out of high school. College life was new and intimidating- I was surrounded by unfamiliar faces and immersed in an entirely new learning environment. I’m sure that many students at Weber- both traditional and non-traditional can relate; everyone around you knows what they’re doing, professors are intimidating and difficult to relate to and positive study habits difficult to establish. I had been told that my time spent at college was going to be the best years of my life, but I wasn’t entirely convinced.
In my sophomore year, I took a chemistry class that I loved. I was immediately enthralled with a world I couldn’t see. It wasn’t until a couple of semesters later that I joined the Chemistry Club, a decision I wish I’d made sooner.
Sure, I was outside of my comfort zone, but I began to build strong relationships with my previously nameless classmates. They had great advice! I received recommendations for classes and teachers based on my personal learning styles, tips on how to succeed in a challenging course and formed study groups that optimized my learning. We held healthy competitions for the best test grade and celebrated when someone did well. I was inspired to work harder in my classes and become more involved on campus.
I’ve learned that EVERYONE has advice to give and that the relationships you build today will follow you throughout your education and career. The College of Science has recognized this and sees the benefits you receive from forming these connections during your time at Weber. As the College of Science Student Senator, I, along with the college’s clubs and organizations (including my friends in the chemistry club!) are invested in your future. We want to make it easier for you to be involved by inviting you to be your club’s valentine on February 14, 2020. Join us from 9-12 AM in the Tracy Hall Atrium to “Love UR Club”.
Thanks to our College of Science Dean, Dr. Easter-Pilcher, club entrance fees are waived. Clubs will compete for prizes- including, but not limited to dinner and club funding. All participants will have opportunities to win various prizes throughout the day, make new friends and gear up for a great semester!
I’ve loved my time spent at Weber and the connections I’ve built are invaluable. If this isn’t enough to convince you to join a club, did I mention the pies we had at our Chemistry Club Thanksgiving?
