Back to school tips – Part 2
Once you’re on your campus
Make sure to get plugged into a Bible study.
This is a great way to deepen your faith and build lasting friendships. Cru offers some great studies, either to join or start one yourself.
Stop by tables and booths around campus.
Don’t just pass them by, but instead stop and chat with your fellow students at the tables in the student union or sidewalk. Take a flyer, fill out a survey, and ask good questions to the person at the booth. You’ll make their day!
Find a local church to get involved in.
Invite some friends to come with you as you check out different local churches. They’re one of the best places to experience the community outside of campus. Many even offer shuttles to Sunday services for students without cars.
Go to all the free events that your campus offers.
Freshman orientation party? Concert during the first week of classes? Take advantage of these free events to meet new people and explore your campus. You never know who you’ll meet or what might happen.
Explore all the clubs and organizations on your campus.
Whether they are academic, government or service clubs, the organizations on your campus are great places to plug in make a difference. Check them out!
Sign up for an elective class outside your comfort zone.
Will you check out photography or cooking? Maybe economics or rock climbing? Stretch yourself, meet some amazing people and learn some new skills!
