Being The Club President

By Hedrick Lepsch

When it comes to your college experience, it is supposed to be one of the best and most exciting time of your life. It is also a time that will be very important in the creation of your future. The choices you make as a college student have the potential to affect you for the rest of your life!

So as you start out in college and try to decide what you want to do with your life, remember that now is the time to dream big. It is a time to plan for your future, but also embrace the present and have fun. Finding a balance between working hard and having a good time is the key to the optimal college experience.

And when you are actually chosen for a position of leadership, there are many things you need to keep in mind. Becoming a top notch club president requires a lot of work, but will mostly be extremely rewarding, and will help you to feel more capable of pursuing a future in leadership. There are many elements of being a good leader, and by mastering them, you will be more successful now, and in the future.

Often the clubs that people join are not only a way to make new friends, but a way to make a difference with these new friends. Participating in clubs and program that give back by serving and volunteering in the community is a great way to spend free time with a nice payback.

One of the most important things is to balance your social life and your academic life. Find out what kind of a schedule you need. For some students, cramming works out well, while for others, consistent studying is better. Making your friends a priority is especially important. If you don't give yourself a chance to play, you will crash.

The skills that you learn as a club president will help you in your future career in business, accounting, or property management. The ability to plan and execute events will allow you to succeed in almost any career, and the experience will be invaluable to the development of your skill set.

If you are unhappy, you will have a more difficult time being successful. That does not mean that you should love every class you take, some classes will be challenging and maybe even boring, but find a way to enjoy even those classes, or at least to reward yourself for attending them.

College is an exciting and important time, so as you pursue your degree in business administration, a computer science degree, or a degree in chemistry, make sure to balance your time. Have fun with your friends, and give yourself time to study. If it helps you to make a schedule, make one. If you work better in the mornings, set your study time accordingly.
