There’s no way around it, Christopher Newport University is a loving community. Most people find this out very quickly, but for others it can take a while to become acclimated. The best part of being such a small campus is becoming a part of it and its culture. So, don’t waste any time!
If you want to meet new people and expand your horizons, start with “hello.” Say hi while you’re in line at Commons, or finally meet the people you sit next to in class. This can sound a little intimidating, and even weird, but you’ll find your peers in this university are very kind and would love to get to know you.
Another great way to meet people is to get involved. Consider joining a club or any other sort of activity. In the David Student Union (DSU), you’ll often find tons of organizations vying for your attention and participation. Check them out! Plus, in the DSU, as well as every other building, you’ll find bulletin boards with tons of opportunities. From book clubs to athletics, there’s something for everyone.
CNU caters to its students with a very accepting atmosphere.Take advantage of it!
