- [00:00:05.570]It's time for the third rotation.
- [00:00:07.310]Let's finish out Husker Power with E and R.
- [00:00:10.770]E stands for engagement.
- [00:00:12.030]We're talking everything from clubs, inter murals,
- [00:00:14.550]research, study abroad, Greek life,
- [00:00:16.970]internships, on-campus jobs, and more.
- [00:00:20.320]R stands for relationships.
- [00:00:22.100]And no, we're not talking about romantic relationships.
- [00:00:25.130]We want you to build relationships with your peers,
- [00:00:27.870]staff, faculty, alumni, and community members.
- [00:00:31.978](indistinct) What does E and R look like for you?
- [00:00:37.579]I'm a part of the student alumni association.
- [00:00:39.360]It has allowed me to gain a great network on campus,
- [00:00:41.680]as well as leadership experience.
- [00:00:44.430]I wanted to pursue an involvement on campus that engaged
- [00:00:46.024]both my culture and career aspirations.
- [00:00:48.370]That is why I established the future teachers of color
- [00:00:50.690]as a recognized student organization, where I now serve
- [00:00:53.050]as a vice president and primary programmer.
- [00:00:56.770]The idea of a college professor can be intimidating,
- [00:00:59.530]but it is super important to get to know your instructors.
- [00:01:03.400]One way I did this, is I went to class every single day
- [00:01:07.170]and I would go say, thank you to my professor after class
- [00:01:10.040]so that he would remember me.
- [00:01:11.950]I realized that my instructors are there to help me succeed
- [00:01:15.040]and that they are people too.
- [00:01:17.290]One relationship I gained was through my sorority
- [00:01:19.550]big Jenna. Jenna has been my biggest mentor on campus
- [00:01:22.730]and encourages me to step out of my comfort zone everyday.
- [00:01:26.280]And I serve as a mentor in Lincoln Public Schools
- [00:01:28.980]through Nebraska Human Resources Institute or NHRI.
- [00:01:32.970]This has helped me make connections both on campus
- [00:01:35.570]and within the Lincoln community.
- [00:01:37.747]Next, we have an activity to get you thinking specifically
- [00:01:40.500]about what types of engagements and relationships you may
- [00:01:43.420]see in your own college experience.
- [00:01:46.300]And then it's onto the last rotation.
