  • Pop That Bubble!

    We go to a school of 40,000 students and yet we always seem to forget how many resources and activities are provided to us each and every day on this campus.  It is easy to fall into a “bubble of comfort” after adjusting to the initial year on campus.  However, UIUC promotes such a diverse, and involved campus that it is not hard to go outside of your comfort zone.  In fact, speaking from a personal experience, some of the best times I have had in college is when I took a leap of faith and joined a club that none of my friends were in, or tried a new restaurant on campus!  There is so much to do on campus that there is literally not one second to be bored.   Watching a show at Krannert, volunteering in the community outside of campus, exploring downtown Champaign- these are all underrated things that could be one of the best memories you have from college.  We are given but only four years to enjoy this amazing campus, so let’s pop that bubble and step outside of our comfort zones!
