I believe that every human being on the face of the earth has something to offer the community and the general public. One can be artistic, humorous, a good debater, wrestler, footballer, designer, philosopher, poet, writer, artist, or just loves to talk.
On the other hand, every student who goes to a university may not be able to fit-in easily as the people may be different or just for a reason that the person looks different or dresses differently or talks differently the student body may not notice/accept the student.
Thus, every university in the world has created many avenues for the students to mingle, not feel estranged, not feel lonely or learn more about life in general. These avenues are called sports clubs and societies. For Example, Trinity College Dublin has 50 clubs and 120 societies, below are just examples of such societies and clubs.
- American Football
- Gaelic Football
- Snow sports
- Sub Aqua
- Surfing & Bodyboarding
- Table Tennis
- Tae Kwon Do
- Ultimate Frisbee
As you can see, there is a sport or two for every person, even if the students do not know the sport, they can for sure join it and learn.
These can be in one or more of the following areas:
My message to all students is: Do not be a stranger, and surely do not lock yourself in your room! Go out and join a sports club or association and meet new people and learn new things. Life can be full of surprises; however, these surprises are only going to come to those that threw themselves into the deep end.
