Here’s What They Don’t Tell You About Writing for the Comment

So, you’re thinking about joining an organization on campus, huh? What’s that you say, the Comment? You want to write for the Comment? That’s great! Before you join, though, there are some things you should definitely know before making that decision. These are some of the unknown secrets, if you will; the things nobody talks about, if you’re picking up what I’m putting down. 

  • It’s a commitment. A commitment to making the best new friends, expressing yourself, writing about things you care about, and maybe even finding new passions along the way. Sounds pretty terrible, right? I mean, who in their right mind wants to partake in all of those self-improving activities?

 

  • Thirsty Thursdays? More like Thinking Thursdays. We meet every Thursday at 6:00 for less than an hour. We talk, brainstorm, and unwind with each other after a long week of classes. That sounds pretty terrible too, right? Ugh, having fun after a long week is the worst! Can’t make it but want to write with us? Email us at thecomment@student.bridgew.onmicrosoft.com, we’d still love to have you. 

 

  • You will get more than you bargained for. You’ll receive ongoing support from all of us. We’re each other’s biggest cheerleaders and we can’t wait to be yours, too. Your ideas are important and you deserve to have them heard. 

 

So, to join or not to join, that is the question. Answer it by emailing us or coming to our weekly meetings every Thursday night at 6:00 in RCC 005!
