After reading up on the refund check policies on the Bursar’s website, I found myself looking for student groups I could join once school starts.
The first one I noticed was a student chapter of the ALA. However, to join the student chapter, you need to be a member of the ALA. I’ve been advised by several people to take advantage of the student rate, so I went ahead and paid the membership fees, then filled out a form for the student chapter, and BAM! I’m a member of both now.
Another group I’m interested in is the Black Graduate Student Association. I’m sure there will be a few members that attend the graduate reception next week, so I can find out more about the group then.
I may already be a member of iDiversity, but I’m not sure. I went to one of their meetings and signed up to receive emails about future events, but I guess that doesn’t necessarily make me a member.
Trying to stay busy. 🙂
