While taking Elementary Chinese, I had the opportunity to practice traditional Chinese calligraphy. This was my absolute favorite part of class because it shows that there is not only a difference in the way words are written (characters versus letters), but also a difference in the method of how the language is written. Calligraphy is a traditional part of Chinese history and culture, and being able to practice it myself made me respect that aspect of the Chinese culture even more. It is no easy feat to write using a calligraphy brush!
Student Involvement And Leadership
The decision is yours: get a degree or get an education.
If you choose to get an education, know that it won't happen just in the classroom. The balance of your college education, and some of your most memorable experiences, will take place within student organizations, completing community service opportunities, participating in leadership development programs, living in a residence hall, acting in theatre productions, contributing as part of a music ensemble or competing on the athletic field.
Any actively involved student can attest to the learning acquired and the satisfaction experienced through their college involvement. By combining the skills you develop through your co- and extra-curricular involvement with the knowledge you gain in the classroom, you will be much better prepared to explore and develop your championship potential.
Whatever your interests or reasons to get involved, there is probably an organization or opportunity in existence to suit your needs. If not, the Office of Student Involvement and Leadership supports and encourages participation in co- and extra-curricular activities as an integral part of your total education and we'll help you get in touch with similarly interested students to create a new opportunity that's right for you.
