Any recruitment pitch tells students how they can get involved on campus, but they never mention it’s your job to seize these opportunities.

Between greek life, athletics, student senate and clubs, most students have no problem listing a handful of activities they participate in on campus. .

As the first week comes to a close and you start to settle into what will be your home for the next nine months, take time to think about what activities you want to be involved in, and what kind of experience you want to take away from your time at Baker University.

What you get out of Baker will be exactly what you put into it. No matter how many e-mails or fliers organizations shove down your throats, it’s up to you to walk across campus and check it out. No matter how much a professor tries to challenge your thinking, it’s up to you to open your mind to learn.

Baker, like life in general, consists of what you make of it. Students who take advantage of Baker’s opportunities will walk away with a much better experience than people who sit around mumbling their shoulda, coulda, wouldas.

Many people list Baker’s size as a reason they chose to come here. With less than 1,000 students, people looking for one-on-one attention will have no problem finding it. However, if you don’t show much interest in your classes and your professors, don’t expect them to show much interest in you.

A new school year is a good time to turn over a new leaf. Do something you’ve always wanted to do. We all know the cost of tuition. Make sure you get your money’s worth.
