To some, Meaningful Involvement is a concept that is simultaneously mysterious and obvious. Sure, involvement seems easy and yes, experiences should have meaning. But in a society that tells us “more is the answer!” how do you teach, and more importantly learn, the balance and importance of Meaningful Involvement?
Do what you love.
Part of getting involved in college is to build your resume. But it doesn’t end there. You need a sense of belonging, to make friends with similar interests and to spend time in activities that you enjoy. Find positive experiences that you enjoy to improve your college years and beyond.
Change is the only thing that remains the same.
Your interests will change, your friends will change, your groups will change and the rules always change. You need to be adaptable, progressive and confident as you push toward your goal.
