Research shows that students who are actively engaged are generally more successful academically.  Whomp, whomp, whomp,....
I know you probably tuned out, after the 1st sentence.  But let's assume the above premise, in fact is accurate. What does it mean for you? Get involved in your community: religious organization, fraternity/sorority, service and honor organizations, anything that you can do.  Get off your rusty duff and experience what is out there.  Stop complaining about what can't be done, and instead focus on what you can contribute.
Find your passion and start from there.  Not everyone is able and should work with kids or... (Add your comment).  Take the road less traveled and find where you fit in.  For example, a research lab to experience testing and running subjects.  Or enjoy work with kids to test your patience, sense of humor and your immune system.
With the PSY service & intern fair around the corner, take this time to explore something new, something different.  The Fair is this Thursday, February 7, 2013 from 1:00 – 4:00 PM, first floor Psychology building.  Hope to see as many of you there!!
