As a senior now at Westside High School, I noticed that many of my friends were in clubs and organizations and were always busy doing something. I realized that I should’ve been involved at Westside. My advice to all the underclassmen is simply to get involved in any club or organization. Some will say that they wont have any time for outside activities, which it totally fine. We’re all different and if you know you are more focused on your academics then you can just do you but that doesn’t mean you can not expand academically. Westside offers various activities fit for basically every kind of student. From academic clubs such as chemistry club to fun social life such as the Black Student Union club. A lot of the times, students will seem tired and stressed and they are and they might feel regret of joining. But, its worth it. Think about it this way, would you rather be regretful of joining and being stressed? Or be regretful for not joining. I regret not being a part of anything because I would have had the chance to meet new people and be close to my teachers. Being a part of a team open doors for everyone. It’ll look good in College resumes and job apps.

It’s never too late to join clubs and organizations. I joined Film club as a senior and because of it, I was able to expand my knowledge of cameras and movies. Literally, anyone can benefit from just joining. And if along the road you just don’t have the time nor patience for it, you can drop any time. It will not hurt you. You can even come back. Some students look at it passionately, like a family. You create not just friendships, but a bond, a team, a family. Westside bring students together and establish a stronger community.
