Hello everyone! Chau is here!
I hope everyone has a great start for your semester. 👏👏
I don't know if anyone feels like me, but I kind of have a mixed feeling when we are back IN-PERSON! I was so excited to be back in the classroom. I even pictured myself interacting with people, making friends, joining clubs, and having so much fun that I have missed for 2 years during the pandemic. BUT, I am not really feeling that when I am back to class 😕😕😵
I personally have a hard time to make friends💔💔. Does anybody feel me???
BUT!!! I do not want to be alone forever hahaha, so I find out there are many ways for me to find a friend.
Let me show you how:
Step 1. Finding your interest: it will be more fun when you do something that you enjoy, right?
For me, I like body movement (most activities required moving, I know 😅). SO Be specific!!! It's important!
Step 2. Willing to be open: relationship is complicated, so prepare for it.
Step 3. You can ignore 1 & 2, but you have to see my collection of resources on campus where you might find your soulmate 👻👻
➤ The CAVE:
The CAVE is a great place to hang out, meet other students, catch up with friends, study, enjoy lunch, or rest between classes. Though it is called “The CAVE” the physical space is vibrant and the diverse community members create a warm and welcoming space for all. After 5pm and on the weekends, The CAVE hosts concerts, performances, and club meetings.
Hours: Monday- Thursday 9am-5pm & Friday 9am -2:30 pm
Location: The basement of Anderson University Center
➤ Clubs and Group activities: I strongly recommend you to have at least 1 experience with the clubs and group activities at PLU. I was a shy and “lazy” student who did not like to join any big event or crowded activities. BUT I am in love with these clubs.
👉Group X: (X for exercise😁 ) where you find some fun activities, classes such as Yoga, Zumba, and Boot Camp. The BEST part is you don’t have to commit with it UNLESS you are in love with it.
I have the link HERE, so check it out and you might see me in those classes.
👉Outdoor Rec trips (like KAYAKING, HIKING, CAMPING) is more than a trip- it is a wholesome experience. Each weekend, they come together and go off campus for a outdoors journey. It's whether hiking in the cascades, kayaking on the Puget Sound, or exploring states near and far. That will be a unique experience for you! I promise👌

👉Like sport??? Let me introduce you to Intramurals. Pacific Lutheran University Intramural programs provide students with positive social opportunities and are an outlet for good clean fun (well sometimes it’s muddy fun), exercise and relaxation, while encouraging team spirit and good sportsmanship.
If you like a little friendly competition you’ll love the PLU Intramural program. Whether it’s team sports, individual competitions, or live action role playing, intramurals are open to all current PLU students, faculty and staff regardless of athletic ability. These programs are designed as a way for students to get out, have fun and stay fit!
💪💪💪To register for intramural sports, you need to create an account on https://www.imleagues.com/ and select Pacific Lutheran University as your school. You should then be able to register for the sports under the Intramurals section.
👉Last but not least, MAKERSPACE. This is the place that I just got introduced to. MAKERSPACE is an awesome place for people who are interested in crafting, or being creative with different projects.
