There are so many ways to make yourself stand out at college and one way is by getting noticed on your campus’s social media accounts! In addition, I will be giving you six sure ways to get noticed in College.
College is a time for new beginnings. It’s also a time where you may feel like you’re invisible, or that nobody knows who you are. You’re not alone in this feeling. College can be an overwhelming experience and it takes some adjusting to get the hang of things – especially if you’ve never been away from home before!
Below are 6 sure ways to get noticed in college:
- Join a club, sorority, or organization on campus: some of us went through school without allowing the school go through us, and we have regrets. We have some non-governmental organizations, a first aid unit, a man o’ war (a paramilitary unit), and many others in Nigerian universities. It could even be a religious organization, those are the easiest grassroots you could find in college.
- Be outgoing and make friends with people who are different from you: It’s normal to want to stick to the people in your circle, but you already know that that would not do the trick. Go all out and interact with people in other fields, you’ll be able to reach them whenever the need arises too.
- Volunteering is one of the easiest ways to get noticed in college. Volunteer for events that interest you on campus. Events like concerts and festivals should not pass you by. Every event needs proper preparation and you could help with that. Find a niche that suits you best. It could be logistics, decoration, photography, protocol, or welfare. Just do something while getting to know the people who attend it. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
- Participate in activities outside of your major, such as dance classes, cooking workshops. Etc. all work and no play makes you a dull and unknown student. Extra-curricular activities are more relieving than you can imagine. A friend in college got popular for joining taekwondo classes and fighting for our school in the national competitions.
- Create a blog about what you do at school: Other students will definitely want to tag along too! The world has gone digital and creating an informative and entertaining blog can help people notice you faster than you can imagine. Don’t worry about content; it is scattered all over campus – from daily life to academics to major events to minor gossips. This could also get you paid especially for business advertisements. Think about it!
- Find a mentor to help guide you through college life: you must have heard of “godfather-ism” before. Be friendly with professors – they can be great mentors and connections for jobs after graduation. Choose a mentor that can surely give you leverage on campus too.
