PERSPECTIVES

Becky Jegier

I would advise all first year students to not be afraid to try something that they have never done before. I joined the sailing team my first semester and it was the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Even though I had never sailed before, the experienced members of the team were more than willing to help and to teach me the sport. In addition to learning a new skill, I made some great friends and had some very fun times at practices and regattas. I would encourage everyone to try something that they have never done before – whether it be a new sport, a class in something that sounds interesting, or any of the millions of clubs on campus. There are so many opportunities at Notre Dame, from becoming belay certified at the rock climbing wall to attending a festival that celebrates the Chinese New Year, there is something for everyone’s interests. Try out something new – you won’t regret it!
