When students arrive at their new college, they are often told how important it is to get involved.
Logan Hall ’14 remembers being one of these students, and he has discovered that being involved not only helps the time go by, but it allows a student to strengthen a passion and brings the student body together.
Hall is proof that there is a club, or multiple clubs, designed for each and every student. Besides majoring in Secondary Education with a specialization in Agriculture, he is a secretary for National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA), president of the 4-H Club, resident assistant of South Hall, an A-Day executive team member, a Rambassador, a Stop the Hate trainer, and is a part of the Pride Campaign.
Not only is Hall involved with a variety of clubs and organizations on campus, he also is the founder of one. He started the 4-H Club on DelVal’s campus during his sophomore year when he noticed the school did not have an organization relating to it. Hall has had a passion for 4-H since he was a child, and did not want to give it up in college. He wanted to start the club because he saw that 4-H allowed him to have many opportunities, and he wanted students at DelVal to experience the same thing.
“You can only be involved with 4-H until you’re 18, in the state of Pennsylvania,” said Hall. “[The club at DelVal] gives us the chance to stay connected [with 4-H] and to give back.”
Hall thinks that being involved doesn’t just help the student, but helps the entire college community. He believes that being involved in just one club helps a student stay connected with the other organizations on campus, and will help the campus become its own community.
“We need to try and build the biggest and best community,” said Hall.
Hall has decided to not limit himself even after he finishes college. He plans on going to graduate school to get his master’s in agriculture education.
There is one thing he knows he must have in his future, and that is involvement with other people. Hall wishes to work with youth, and continue to immerse himself in the agricultural community.
“I’ve left my plate open for anything,” said Hall.
