Cruising into the First Day of Spring
It’s official. Spring has arrived! Whether you’re already back on campus, or getting ready to make your return, it’s time to get the juices flowing! As the first day of spring rolls around, you’ll want to have a bit of preparation in motion.
Ask yourself, as well as your peers, what you’re looking for out of the spring semester. Are there specific themed parties, gatherings, or events that feel relevant to your aspirations this term? Gathering for a cause or theme is a creative way to incentivize change in your community. It’s also a staple in Greek life.
Connect with your peers, and build a network of like-minded students to bring your goals to life. Building connections and developing plans early on will help to create a smooth spring semester. This will further solidify the success of your school year.
Preparing for Spring Break
Spring break is another anticipated point in the semester to look forward to! With social networks a-buzz and academics building in intensity, this rest period offers a cool down for students and faculty alike. This is an opportunity to reset and return stronger after your spring break.
Whether you join friends on a trip or choose to stay on campus for the break, allow yourself to pause. By this time in the semester, gatherings and schoolwork are in full swing. It’s important to stay grounded by keeping your goals in mind.
Take advantage of the time you have during spring break to reconnect with your aspirations and return to school with balance. This way, you’ve enjoyed the rest while resetting the intentions you established at the start of the semester.
Coming Together During the Spring Semester
If you spent the early days of spring planning ahead, you’re in great shape! Ideally, you have put together a group of peers with similar goals. With this as your foundation, you’re that much closer to making the semester successful for your community.
After you’ve identified your cause or goal, create an event centered around your goal. Need to raise money? Throw a pizza party and gather for a slice. Raising awareness about a specific topic? Host a student showcase or screen a movie to educate your community on the cause! It’s up to you to create ways to bring your community together.
The more specific you are with your goals, the more results you’ll see. Whether you find your core support system or strategize events for your community, there is no shortage of ways to make the semester successful. Prioritize your goals and take the spring semester by storm this year!
