From his first semester, Jaron Hollida knew the key to his success would be getting involved on campus.
“I didn’t know anyone when I came here. I was three hours from home,” says the Martinsburg native. “I joined clubs and instantly made the right group of friends. Involve yourself in clubs. Getting involved adds to what you learn and helps you build more independence. Getting involved keeps you busy and out of trouble. A lot of opportunities, like internships, come with being involved.”
