Talking about catching thinking grooves MT @chelsmerget: @DeanElmore on #CampusChat tonight! #BU peeps chime in at 9PM! http://shar.es/chhCDKenn Elmore
Glad to be in the house! RT @collegevisit: Hey folks, time for #CampusChat! Guest @DeanElmore from #BU Boston University’s Dean of Students!Kenn Elmore
Q1: First step to involvement is to look around and to chat with other folks. Also try job boards and explore your city. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Here’s a tip: don’t explore on your own – it’s awkward. Try to explore with a friend or two – it takes the edge off. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Great idea to get to know returning students, but they can be annoyingly enthusiastic – sign up for one activity & follow up #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Besides clubs look to get involved through internships, jobs, start-up companies, service, networking opps, and other people #CampusChatKenn Elmore
I have found that intramural sports and service opportunities are some of the best long-term and meaningful shared experiences #CampusChatKenn Elmore

True that! RT @YourCollegeKid: Q2:Gen eds are great for broadening horizons #CampusChatKenn Elmore
With a break in the convo, I made a playlist for the chat http://spoti.fi/VpTRIp It’s great as background or to just enjoy.Kenn Elmore

Don’t poo-pooh the importance of networking and parties to meet people – especially the folks with resources to help #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Music is about groove. Getting involved is about catching your groove. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Students take dining halls and campus dining for granted. It’s usually about meeting and experience as much as it is about eats. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Career exploration is often taken for granted. Finding vocation that meets the world’s greatest need is essential to education. #CampusChatKenn Elmore

Ask you: in 20 years, what do I see myself getting up each day to run to do? You’ll get insight into elements of your calling #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Libraries are overlooked. The world exists in these places – for real and online. Besides, they’re in the midst of a revolution. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
@Zach_Richards aggressive listening and real heart from students are necessary to obtain good academic advising #CampusChatKenn Elmore
If done well, libraries are civic centers of communities #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Students can also minimize the importance of just hanging out and chit-chat. This is NOT the wasted time of involvement. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
I like that networks need not be as large as we think. Here, we’re in Mesopotamia – the world comes here to engage #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Got to put your work in! Face-to-face chatter and networking takes skill. Skill that is rarely understood or practiced. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
For me, involvement is about how we use language and how language becomes a part of how we physically use it. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
involvement is also about being interesting. Prep up on the essentials of cool convos: art, music, style, pop, culture, food. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Don’t hate on texting and short posts. Static language might be dead language. Dead language is dead culture? #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Having an academic and social life IS healthy. Got to balance it, for sure, but might also have to make some sacrifices. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Think about this: 24 hours in a day; 8 for study; 8 for beauty sleep & health; 8 for fun (probably more fun than you can stand). #CampusChatKenn Elmore
As big as any person or group wants to make it. It’s an important part of campus. RT @collegevisit Is Greek life big on campus? #campuschatKenn Elmore
As my friend @sportsgirlkat tells us, the secret to a great college life is to not date in college. #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Make commitments and give them time. Can’t do it all. RT @AMabe221: @DeanElmore how do you balance social and academic life? #CampusChatKenn Elmore
Another piece of unsolicited advice for success: meeting folks is awkward. We all know it, so get over it. #CampusChatKenn Elmore

@jeannieborin I love seeing signals of passion and persistence with a little joy on the side. Also helps to know why you’re here #campuschatKenn Elmore
It’s been real. Thank you. RT @collegevisit: Please join me in BIG thank you to @DeanElmore for being an awesome guest tonight! #campuschatKenn Elmore
