I do not repot to CMU on Fridays unless there is an event happening, where I have to check in. I still want to be able to help at RMU when I can. Today was one of those days. There was a Transfer Student Ice Cream Social Happening. I met with Natacia in the Center for Student Success to help her create a flyer in Canva for the event. We talked about the social, and the itinerary for the event. I was excited to apart of this event.
When I went to RMU, I was a transfer student, a commuter student, and a first-generation student. The transfers, commuters, and first-gens hold a special place in my heart. I am passionate about them and want to see them succeed.
When I arrived to the event, which was held in the Franklin Center. Believe it or not this was the first time I have ever been in the Franklin Center. I logged in and turned on my Spotify and started playing a playlist for the social.
A few minutes later, Natcia arrived and I helped her set up. Once the students arrived, we got started with the ice cream. Sewickley Confectionary provided the ice cream. Then Natcia conducted some ice breakers with the students. After ice breakers we introduced ourselves and the contacts from the Career Center spoke about ways they could help the transfer students. Natacia also spoke about the Center for Student Success. It was a good event, but only a handful of students showed up. I wish more students would go to these events, but we do what we can to show that RMU cares.
