A Fresh Start

Happy first day of the Spring Semester! It’s a new year, a new semester, and the perfect time for a new start, a fresh one.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing break, however, it’s time to keep hustling! As the first day has approached us all, let’s take a quick moment to the overview a few new additions to USG:

  1. The new 24/7 Grab & Go in the Building 3 Green Grove Cafe has officially opened. It’s accessible to all students who’d like to drop by and grab a snack, coffee, or heat-to-eat meal anytime while at USG! There will be a second addition in the BSE (Building 4) in the near future.
  1. The Career and Internships Services Center is now providing individual career coaching! With this service, you can get resume reviews, cover letter reviews, interview prep, and more. Be sure to activate your account with the following link:


  1. Welcome Back Coffee Hours will provide you with free coffee, tea, giveaways, and more! There will be several events this year but the upcoming event will be held on Monday, January 30th at 9am-10am outside of Building 4, Suite 1322

I encourage you to plug-in as much as possible this semester. If you felt like you didn’t get involved as much as you would’ve liked, now is the time. Find a new club to join, start a new club, introduce yourself to new faces, join a Coffee Hour, get your resume reviewed, and most of all, have fun. I have a good feeling about this semester and I hope you do too.

About melanyclaros

Hi everyone! My name is Melany Claros and I am currently a Junior at the University of Maryland, College Park at the Universities at Shady Grove. I was born and raised in Maryland and I love this state! I recently graduated from Montgomery College with an associate of arts in Business and am now majoring in Marketing in the Robert H. Smith School of Business. I also have a minor in Technology Entrepreneurship & Corporate Innovation. I hope to expand my knowledge in marketing analytics and I strive to obtain an internship where I can gain experience in the fruition that resonates with Marketing. Some topics I plan to write about include struggles that first-generation college students face (especially in the perspective of Latino households), imposter syndrome, and fun hobbies like hiking, new books I suggest people should read, new music discoveries, and much more. During my free time I enjoy reading, listening to music, discovering new coffee shops, and spending time with my friends and family.
