08 27 2014 student activity fair EC226Today’s blog is from Mercedes Vega, a senior Education major from Surprise, Ariz.

I firmly believe that TU has a club or organization suited for every student on this campus.  If you want to be a part of something, it is so easy to join a group that fits you.  Each year during the first week of school TU hosts an activities fair so students can check out the different clubs and organizations and decide which ones they want to join. And each year I find more groups that pique my interest. Even as a senior, I signed up to get information from three more organizations that I thought sounded like fun and that I had no idea existed until then.

With that being said, if there is something you feel this campus is missing, do not fear!  It is pretty easy to start your own organization on campus.  I would know. My freshman year I was one of six founding members of a non-panhellenic sorority on campus.  (Non-panhellenic just means that our national council is different than the national council of the traditional sororities on campus).

Flash back to this time three years ago. You would have found a small group of girls meeting once a week in the basement of Lottie Jane Mabee Hall.  When everyone showed up there were eleven of us, and we had no idea what we were doing. But we did know we wanted to bring a Christian sorority to TU’s campus.
