St.A.R.T. Applications!

Well, it’s that time of year for applications. The selection process is fairly easy. Applicants fill out an application form, interview, and then wait to find out if they have been selected. If you’re pondering on whether you’d be interested or not let me take a few moments to hopefully sway your mind (towards becoming a member, of course!).

 First off, being a StART member is a great opportunity as a student and future employee. You are able to network with alumni and expand your social web. You are given chances to attend professional meetings and parties that other Ball State students wouldn’t normally have. You are also given the chance to make a differnce by volunteering for the Salvation Army or a pre-game tailgate party. This semester I am volunteering at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum. Really, the possibilities are endless.

 Second, meetings are every other Wednesday morning. Sure it’s early, but I cannot think of a better reason to get out of bed in the morning. Ideas are bounced around and accomplished, the advisors provide a great breakfast, and meetings are short and to the point. 

 Finally, being in StART has given me so many more opportunities to meet other students. Sure, you’ve heard the cliche, “you’ll make great new friends that will last a lifetime… (and all of that other stuff).” But I’m here to tell you that you really will. You get out of StART what you put in, and if you come to make new friends and give your time to worthy events you will not regret joining.

I hope that I’ve given you a little better idea of what it means to be a StART member. More so, I hope that I will be seeing you at interviews. Hey, why not become involved in one of the best groups on campus?
