How to enrich your college life^_^
Besides attending classes, there are a variety of opportunities for fun and enriching extracurricular activities around campus. I hope every CNR student would consider joining a student group or volunteering service that best fits his or her interests. Not only do these activities add sparkle to your resume, but they also help you become more aware and knowledgeable about the field that you are interested in. In addition, they are a lot of fun and a good way to network and make friends who share common interests and passions.
Ever since freshman year, I have been a part of a chinese cultural club called CPU (Chinese People Union). It has enriched my life so much here at CAL and given me an opportunity to reconnect with my Chinese roots. I remember in my freshmen year, around this time when the Chinese Moon holiday was around the corner, I felt very much alone. But CPU held a social event where we all gathered at the Marina and celebrated this holiday under the moonlight. And throughout the semester, there are many more such social events that give students a chance to relax and enjoy themselves. Within this diverse campus, I am glad that I have been able to find a club that has given me a feeling of home:)
Also, I have been a volunteer at the University Tang Center for two consecutive years. I have volunteered in several departments such as the dermatology clinic, administrative services, optometry clinic, and the pharmacy. Each of these departments train you in becoming familiar with the general aspects of the work that they do and also gives you a chance to help out the doctors and staff. I have always been interested in pharmacy and medication. And after volunteering at the pharmacy through the Tang Center, I have discovered my interest in going into the field of Nutritional Pharmaceuticals. I believe that medication can be a healthy way of promoting health in addition to a well balanced diet and lifestyle. Working with the pharmacy technicians and pharmacist there has allowed me to get hands on experience in the field of pharmaceuticals.
So, in addition to studying hard for your classes, take a little time to enjoys yourselves and discover your interests:)
