I recently went to the activities fair, which was everything I expected and more. No seriously, it’s just like the movies, hundreds of tables with people handing out flyers and telling you about their club. I loved walking down each row looking at the signs and thinking, “What am I gonna do here?” College is a clean slate, an opportunity to sign up for new things, and this prospect got me very excited.
