Get Involved There are many reasons to get involved on campus but did you know involvement could improve your chances at success? To avoid boring you with all the research, decades worth of research has been conducted and the results are simple: the more students are involved with campus-life, the greater their chances are at obtaining a degree. Your campus-life experiences improve both your academic and social development in addition to teaching you to become more independent. Source: A.W.

Safety on the Slopes In Skiing, the chances of getting yourself injured are comparatively lower than in bicycling, in-line skating, or jet skiing. However, do not put your safety in jeopardy. You must always be out of harm's way whenever you go Skiing. It is common fact that prevention is still better than cure, and there are things you can do to avoid injuries before hitting the slopes. This section focuses on some guidelines that you can follow before heading the slopes:

Stay Fit Maintaining physical fitness will increase stamina on the slopes as well as reduce the risk of injury.

If you don’t know‌Ask! It is better to heed the advice of Ski instructors and experts, or better yet, take several Ski lessons from a competent Ski instructor. For instance, he will be able to give you some guidelines on how to fall correctly to lessen chances of injury.

Wear Protective Gear Head injuries are one of the worst that you can get in Skiing, so wear a helmet to reduce the risk of head injuries caused by falls and/or collisions.

Stay Warm and Dry Wear ski outfit that can resist wind and water. There are skiing clothes which have wind flaps, shield zippers, cozy cuffs for the wrists and ankles, or adjustable drawstrings to make you warm and keep the wind out. Avoid wearing loose garments since they may be entangled in ski poles and lifts.
