Here at UFV, there are so many things on the go, such as the Cascades varsity teams, CIVL Radio, clubs, associations, yoga, The Cascade newspaper, and more. Joining and being part of a club or team can help bring balance to a crazy class schedule. It’s so easy to get caught up in school work, assignments, work, family, and life in general. Adding some fun into a hectic schedule can help rejuvenate and refresh the mind. Also, one can end up meeting great students at different levels in their study programs, who end up being great support networks. Being a part of the extra curricular activities at UFV or indulging in fun hobbies and activities can help students destress from all their curricular commitments and also make friends for life.
Writing for The Cascade has helped me balance my life with school and work, because it gives me something to look forward to. Although I have taken a break from writing for the last year, returning to writing has brought a calm into my life that I appreciate. I would encourage other students to find their calm in this storm of educational success and bring a balance to their lives too.
