These fine men and women can assist residents in many areas. They know the majority of residents and can help you make new friends. They are able to plan programs for each dorm to help improve the community. You have the opportunity to contribute your ideas to your RAs.
- Look into the clubs and organizations on campus.
The university offers a wide range of clubs that appeal to people’s interest. There are 65 registered clubs on campus alone! These allow students to connect with others who share similar passions to hang out. If you do not see a club that appeals to you, you can create your own. Chances are that other student have those interests too.
- Dedicate at least one day a week to get off campus.
Being on campus 24/7 is not always easy to do. Even though Portales is a small town, it still has plenty to offer. Going out and exploring this wonderful community can help you get away from the stresses of school.
- Be courteous to others.
We are all in this together. There are times where you may not get along with roommates or suite mates. Be kind to your neighbors. It will go a long way in making your dorm experience the best possible. You have to live with each other, so why not get along?
