A Niche for Everyone

At this time of year, we often reflect on the opportunities we’ve been given. Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks for those around us. As college students, the people in our lives contribute to some pretty incredible milestones and achievements. Whether this is the spot on a sports team or an academic scholarship, meeting the perfect group of friends once coming to PC or learning what our true passions are.

Three and a half years ago, I was a freshman entering PC a little unsure of whether or not I would find my “niche.” Coming from a small Catholic school in New Hampshire, the slightly larger Providence College community would definitely be an adjustment. However, soon enough, I realized that in order to feel as included as I once did in high school, I’d have to ask myself what I loved and what I was growing out of. Student Council, a large part of my high school experience, took a back burner to my love for community service, something I wanted to devote much more time towards. I pursued my passion for service at PC through its Urban Action Program. Leadership, something I was also very involved in during high school, was something else that stuck with me. I became a leader on this community service club that began many friendships for me and became the nucleus to my PC identity.

These were the things I knew for sure I wanted to continue pursuing throughout college. However, other opportunities entered my radar that I had yet to know I had a desire to chase. A prime example? Writing. I began blogging for PC and eventually blogging for the study abroad program I travelled to Australia with. Around the same time, a new club on campus came to my attention. PC Lifestyle and Fashion was a new fashion blog started by a group of girls in my class who wanted to relay popular culture information to students. The blog ranges from restaurant reviews to fashion tips and from exercise regimens to local student discounts. I began helping out with the photography aspect of the blog and contributed ideas to future events and posts.

Don’t think I’m the only one who found their niche here at PC. I can tell you of a few others who did the same.

My friend Liv, sings in PC’s all-female Acapella group and has her own radio show on PC’s station, WDOM. My friends Kate, Emma, Meghan, and many more are on PC’s Board of Programmers. My friend Charlie is a member of the Club Hockey team. Emmy and Emily are Intramural Kickball players. Steve is a manager for the Women’s Basketball Team. Danielle is in the Dance Club and caters events for PC. My roommate, Maria is a Division 1 tennis player. Nick and Dave began PC’s “Food Rescue” program. Gerry, Paul, Mike, Gabe, Chris, Clare and again many more are members of PC’s Friars Club.

Whatever you love, there is something here that allows you to pursue it, to dream it and to continue loving it. The hard part is deciding on PC as the lucky place to start your college career. The easy part? The easy part is finding your niche here. There are about a million ways to do so. Oh, and while you’re at it, remember to be thankful for this place that provides so many avenues to explore.
