Living is a part of life. Living is something we all do. As humans we do it, but as people we do it, too. Living is more than just having a heartbeat. Living is experiencing, enjoying, learning, feeling and expressing.
Sometimes, once school gets started, it is hard to live. You get stuck in a scheduled rut. But being a student is not an excuse to distance yourself from new experiences. Keep things interesting. Interact with everything around you. Wonder what would happen if you took a new rout to class. Live! Live! Live! Do something you never thought you could or would do. Push yourself beyond your fears and show the world who you are.
It may be difficult at first to try something new. It is often uncomfortable, but one of the great things about going to USU is the overall kindness and generosity you are likely to experience from fellow students.
Sometimes there is this notion that if you are not “the same” you cannot or should not join. However this is false. The beauty of the Access and Diversity Center is that it is for everyone. Don’t bind yourself with the fear of being different. Instead, embrace your differences and similarities alike. Try something new; go to an event outside of your normal interests, and LEARN. Living is learning, and learning is growing. So learn to live, LIVE to LEARN, and LIVE TO GROW!
