Our view: Go out and support your peers

University is the place to explore different cultures and ideas. It’s the time to learn new things about yourself, and the best way to do that is by experiencing something new, by going out and attending events you wouldn’t normally attend and stepping out of your comfort zone.

The Wichitan has encouraged students to get to know their peers by learning about the different cultures on campus, but another way to connect is by supporting one another by learning about the different majors on campus and attending events held by our peers. It can be pretty easy to get caught up in our own lives, but it’s good to pull back and take a peek into the lives of others.

If you normally only go to sporting events, attend a play held by the theatre department. If you normally only go to housing events then go to a greek life event. Show your support for your peers by attending their events, you can end up enjoying it.

Freshman year we are all looking for a place to fit in and we do that by going to the different school-held events, but it’s important to keep going to the different events, even after finding our fit. MSU Texas is filled with over 100 organizations and 21 fields of study with multiple majors, all of which hold various events throughout the year. MSU has so much to do that it takes more than a freshman year to do everything. Explore MSU, get to know your peers, become involved.
