Emergency Elections Emerge

One of the things that I enjoy the most about Muskingum is the student organizations that they provide. I’m personally a part of several of the “nerd” type groups, including the Muskingum Anime Group and Brony Club, both which show that Muskingum really has something for everyone if you look hard enough.

Amongst these groups, I’ve gotten the opportunity to hold several leadership positions–something I never thought I would get involved with at all. Being a member of a group is one thing, but leading it is completely different.

And yet, somehow, I found myself as president of anime club. Leading a group is really a big challenge and responsibility. It’s taken up a lot of my time and I have to put a large amount of effort into it, but it’s worth it for the sake of seeing the group improve and having our members enjoy themselves.

Recently, we’ve been having several shifts in power. At the end of last semester, the vice president of Brony Club left Muskingum, and I was somehow left to fill in his slot, passing on the secretary position. While it’s an extra responsibility for me, it was a peaceful transition, free of much trouble.

However, the vice president of Anime Club resigned due to other responsibilities at the beginning of the semester. Several delays involving the weather, we were finally able to vote on his replacement this past weekend, giving us a full officer corps again.

So is running a group challenging? In short, yes. However, it’s extremely rewarding, and getting through each new challenge makes you feel accomplished. No matter where you go for school, I definitely recommend getting involved in any organizations! They’re a great experience overall and can help you gain important leadership skills.
