Let me tell you about ...

Setting the stage. About three years ago, when I was a sophomore at Baruch College, my friend Peter and I co-founded a program called Absolute Adrenaline Sports and Business Club along with other friends.

The beginning. Though we recognized the school had great business club, we felt there was a lack of club that also had fun activities for the students. We decided to talk to with students and faculty around to get some feedback about our idea. The result was overwhelmingly positive! Peter and I were very excited about the since we were attending a business school and were also avid sports fans.

The middle. Consequently, we decided to proceed with the process as Peter took charge of getting the club approve with the school and student government, while I took charge in marketing and publishing the events we were planning to put together. Indoor activities such as dodgeball and basketball games, and outdoor events like paintball and rock climbing.

The End. Absolute Adrenaline is now in its fourth year at Baruch and continues to be a popular club for all students, especially the ones who don't want their clubs to be narrow down to just business activities.

Reflection. When I look back there are several reasons I am extremely glad we started AA. One being the feedback I continue to receive about the club when I visit the school. I also feel as though we built and established an area of need at the school. Most importantly, we had unforgettable memories and I met some of my closest friends through to this day through the Absolute Adrenaline Club.
