The pressure is really there when you’re a freshman in college and you want to get involved, but you don’t know where to start. One mistake I made when trying to get involved was joining every organization I could think of that would benefit me. If you’re afraid of commitment, this is not the move for you.
Organizations are time consuming and if you are in one too many groups just for looks, you won’t be getting anything out of them. In my experience, I did not receive much from the organizations I joined because my mind was in too many different places and itwas hard to connect with people. After that trial and error, I knew I would have to pick, choose, and prioritize between the orgs.
