Women’s History Month & International Women’s Day 2018-by Lee

iwd 2

Save the date, as it is an important date for women and female-identifying people around the world!

And the theme is:

iwd 2018

Why is this important? Simply put, women around the world do not get the same things as men. Women have always had to fight harder for equality and equity, and in the this day and time when things are getting shaken up, it’s important for women to band together, now, to achieve things like equal pay, equal treatment, etc. Women have always been treated as less than the man, and this day, is one of many ways to “bite back” at the way we’ve been mistreated, disrespected, downplayed and ignored.

This is a day to show that we run the world. That without us, man is nothing. That without us, there would be no cooked food on the proverbial table. That without us, man would not be nursed back to full health. That without us, we would not, so to speak, procreate, and give birth to children.

Keep posted for updates on this international, world-wide event, and I will continue to post updates on how you can take part if you wish!


Why join a Club? by Lee

That is the question. Why join a club? As a busy student myself, I know that it can be challenging to new students to figure out their schedule. But I also know that once you’re gotten your schedule, and you are in a groove, I’m pretty sure that you can join a club or two.

But let’s say that you do have the time to join one or two clubs. Why should you?

They are also a good way to just relieve stress from exams, and hanging out whnever you have free time. It even connects you to people who may become lifelong friends!

With there being around 50 clubs to choose from, there’s something everyone! I can tell you that I’m currently a member of 5 different clubs, have helped at events of another 5 clubs, and I’m president of the K-Pop club. Again, I’m one busy student, and I love it!

With that being said, join a club! Or start one! When you come to MiraCosta, you can start a club by visiting the Student Center Help Desk, which is the counter top right outside of the International Office.
