On Friday August 18, I moved back to GCU for Welcome Week as a Volunteer so here is a short seek peak into what happens when you are a volunteer and how awesome move in day is. Enjoy!!
Here is my Grand Canyon University Quick Transfer Dorm Tour. I lived in a transfer dorm for both Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 on campus. The room that I stayed in was a double occupancy and handicapped so our bathroom was bigger than our bedroom space. This room has a living room space, two bedrooms on each side of the living room space. My suite mates side had a walk in closet, smaller bathroom than ours and their bedroom space was a bit larger than their bathroom and closet space. My roommate and me had a closet that had a bottom bar for clothes that were not too long that would not hit the floor and the a top bar for our clothes that we wanted to keep off the floor. We had two shelves to store our food, mugs, snacks and other miscellaneous items. My roommates and me made some great memories and I am sad that we are not going to be together again this year. Yet, my roommates keep in touch with each other and I am grateful that we were put together because we did not have many issues and we got a long really well. So I hope you enjoy the video and let me know did you like your living space when you lived on campus and did you get along with your roommates well? if so, tell me what was your favorite memory with your roommates?
My name is Karina Robinson. I am a currently attending Grand Canyon University. LOPES UP!!! I am studying to get my Bachelors degree in Business Administration. I also have a passion for Marketing and Social media. For a long time, I had heard through different mentors and teachers that I should start a blog or a YouTube channel because I had a lot of creative ideas and things to talk about that I thought could be usefully for others. I always worried about “Who would watch my Vlogs or read my blog posts? I was encouraged by my GCU Marketing Professor, Mindy Weinstein, who encouraged me to start my own blog and personal brand. She encouraged my peers and me to start a blog because it would set us apart from other students when looking for a job, it would look good on our resumes and would help us with our writing skills. And also by my mentor, Moniek Eldridge that reminded me that “People want to hear what you have to say especially since you are currently in college. There will be parents and students wanting to know about your experiences, any hacks and tricks to help them have better knowledge about everything GCU.” And this is why I started a blog. In my blog, I’ll be talking about myself, GCU campus life, food and being a transfer. I want to share my thoughts while I am on my personal journey for my purpose in this business and digital media world. I pray that I can inspire and help others that did not have friends and family to guide me when I transferred to GCU a year ago.
I am grateful that I am no longer afraid to share my thoughts and help those that are curious about going to college or transferring to the college of their choice. I just want my readers to know that even though we are going to different colleges, we can learn from each other, encourage and inspire each other to do better for ourselves and communities. I am excited and grateful to blog about what I like and am passionate about. I can’t wait to start and hope that you all will come with me on this journey.
Let me know in the comments section, If any of you are transfer students and what was your experience like at your college? The things you liked about your campus or things you would like for your college to enhance or change so that other transfers have a better experience?
