Welcome back Lancers!
We hope you all had a relaxing and restful break. Hopefully, you all had time to destress and catch up with friends and family during your time away from WSU. As we look to start our spring semester, OSILD would like to encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities to make important connections with your peers that maybe you couldn’t take advantage of last semester. For most of us, last semester came with a lot of adjustment to various class modalities, Covid testing and protocols and the limiting of traditional campus activities. Adjusting to all of these changes proved to be challenging, but you were all able to persevere and make it through. Now that we have adjusted to the “new normal” and with the hope of widespread vaccine dissemination, we can look forward to a more positive semester. We can now focus on thinking ahead to not just managing our new classes, but also to make those connections outside of the classroom as well.
OSILD can provide many opportunities to get involved on campus including club participation, partaking in various virtual and in person events and participating in our leadership opportunities. These opportunities are so important to take advantage of to make those connections not only with peers, but also faculty and administrators. The networking and positive experiences from involvement in co-curricular activities can only benefit you while at WSU as well as in your future career.
Please check out our list of clubs to get involved in at www.worcester.edu/student-involvement. Also, for a complete list of our leadership offerings, please check out www.lead.worcester.edu. For the most up to date information on events, keep an eye on your email for weekly notifications and follow us on Instagram at wsu_osild. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to talk with you about all of the opportunities offered through our office.
Best of luck this semester and keep the positive vibes!
