Getting involved In addition to academic pursuit, which is the core objective of learning s, co-curricular activities and organizations also exist and they moderate students’ academic and social success. I wish to join Martial Arts Club, The Community Connection, and Friends of Friends, some of the organization in the college, and below is a discussion of how I plan to get involved, and how I plan to follow through on getting involved.
The University’s Martial Arts Club is one of the organizations in which I plan to get involved. My involvement will include active participation in the organization’s training sessions and competitions. First, however, will be my passive involvement of watching training sessions in order to determine the activity to which I shall commit. My follow up plans will include monitoring my attendance, with the aim of attending at least 70 percent of training sessions per month. Setting timed-based achievement goals, in competitions, and identifying an accountability partner are other follow up plans on getting involved.
The Community Connection aims at establishing a link between students and Terre Haute citizens and I plan to be involved in the organization’s community initiatives and meetings. I shall follow through getting involved by learning interpersonal relations skills, being updated on the organization’s activities, and recording each activity that I attend and those that I miss. I shall then evaluate my participation, based on response rates of other members, with the aim of ensuring that my involvement is above average response frequency of all members.
Friends of Friend however aims and developing social relations and I plan to get involved through making friends and connecting people for social ties. I will join the organization, identify the most popular people in it, and try to make friends with the people and their associated. I shall also monitor my progress in making and retaining friends.
