When I was in my undergrad career, I spent a lot of time involved in various clubs and activities on and off of campus. Like most undergraduate students, I was concerned about building up my résumé. Now that I am in graduate school, I have noticed that most of my fellow students only come to campus for their classes and/or research. We tend to be so busy with balancing home and school life that we forget to get involved. This lack in community involvement can lead to a severe feeling of being disconnected between graduate students and school.
Why get involved?
Various departments around campus have clubs for their graduate students. In addition to interdepartmental clubs, the UNL GSA (Graduate Student Association) is always looking for new members who wish to get involved!
