Whether it’s your first year or your last, we know you’re just as excited as we are to start off this new semester at Geneseo! Like most Geneseo students, you’re probably keeping very busy and making big plans for this year. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you kick things off:
1.) MacVittie will be your new home. It’s the center of campus, houses Starbucks, Fusion, the bookstore, the mailroom, the multicultural center, the GOLD rooms, and contains super comfy couches for all of your sitting needs. What more could you want? As a bonus, you’ll probably run into every person you know.
2.) The library is your friend. Maybe it’s a cliché, but the library is the perfect place to get all those projects done and reach that 4.0 you’re striving for! Milne has countless resources and helpful librarians who know exactly what you’ll need in any situation. Trust us, this is one place you’ll want to know.
3.) “Freshman 15” doesn’t have to be a thing. Or Sophmore/Junior/Senior/anything in between. One great thing about Geneseo is the amount of food choices on campus, many of which offer healthier options. All it takes is some willpower on your part to make those choices, and you’ll be fine! (But if you drop the ball there, no worries, the fitness center’s got your back).
4.) Get involved=Make friends. You’ve probably heard this a million times, and that’s because it’s true! Give it a shot. You’ll thank us later.
5.) …But “Get involved” doesn’t necessarily mean “Do everything”. There are tons of things to do on campus, and you may want to do them all! You’re encouraged to try everything and anything you want, but don’t forget to take care of yourself (and your homework). Overstretching yourself can get in the way of a successful, fun year.
And last, but not least…
6.) Call your folks. Let’s be real, they worry.
Your Geneseo experience will be what you make of it, and we’re here to help you turn it into the best it can be! Keep up with the MCU blog, Twitter, and What’s Up emails to find out what you really need to know about campus life. #hottestunioninamerica
