What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

1. When you arrived on campus, how did you establish a routine?

Alec - I took summer classes pre-freshman year, so I was able to get the opportunity to learn the campus. When I came back in the fall, it wasn’t as scary to try to learn my way around such a giant campus. It’s important to learn your way around campus and see how long it takes to get from place to place once you get there.

Dylan - A couple days before classes started I walked around the campus to find out where all of my classes were and where the dining hall was located. When I met some people in my classes, I was able to get lunch with them after class which really helped establish a routine.

Aiyana - Orientation at my school really helped me. They mapped out our schedule, they took us to get food in the dining hall, they showed us where our classes were and how long it would take to get there. Once I became a student, I followed that routine because it was easier than trying to map out when I actually got there.

Ella - Unfortunately we didn’t get to have an in-person orientation due to Covid, I had been on my campus before on a tour but some of my friends had never even been here. We are a smaller school, so it wasn’t too much to navigate. Me and my friends get lunch together everyday before we start classes, it’s good to have a routine. It’s really difficult for me to get any work done if I don’t have some sort of structure to my day, so I am glad that I did have a routine.

Kate - I started during the pandemic, so it was harder to get into a routine. All of my classes were different, sometimes the teacher emails you the day before saying class is online rather than in-person. I had to stay on top of my emails to see what my schedule would be like for the day.

Rebecca - When I got to Drexel, I didn’t know anyone except my roommate who I met on a Facebook page. Her and I didn’t know anyone else, so we stayed together so we weren’t alone. Drexel has a weeklong orientation with different activities before classes start. Once classes started and I figured out how to manage my time, I realized I would be able to join some extra curricular activities. I joined a sorority and got a part-time job, in high school I always stayed really busy so I was happy I could keep the same routine in college.

2. Have any advice for incoming freshmen on how to get acclimated in a new environment?

Ella - It’s actually really easy to meet people. In a normal semester without covid it would be easier, but I’ve still been able to meet a lot of new people. Everybody says this, but leaving your door open is good advice so that you can meet your hallmates and their friends. In terms of acclimating yourself, give yourself a little bit of time. You won’t feel at home right away, it’s a learning process and a lot of trial and error. It’s important to find what works for you.

Aiyana - Take advantage of any first week events because that’s when your school will really help put the class all together. It gives everyone a chance to socialize and you can start to meet new people there. If you don’t make friends right away, it’s okay you still have the whole year, but I would definitely take advantage of any organized events.

Alec - I agree with keeping your door open to meet friends in your building and in your hall, I actually ended up moving off-campus sophomore year with friends I met from my dorm. I signed up with a few of my high school friends for an Intramural tournament team. It was a great way to meet friends who share a common interest.  

Kate - Make sure you make connections during welcome week or orientation if your school offers one. If you met people prior to coming to school, make sure you meet up with them and compare schedules to find time to spend time with friends in between classes.  

Bailey - My first year I had a roommate, so we would get breakfast together and introduce each other to new people we met so we could make friends. For the first few weeks when they had involvement fairs and activities, we just showed up to a bunch of random ones to get to know faces on campus. It definitely helped.

Cheyenne - My campus offered a bunch of activities for new students. My advice would be just to get involved, even if you’re nervous - so is everyone else! Everyone wants to meet people, just like you. Everyone is coming in with the same idea, don’t be afraid to get to know people. Enjoy the things you’re doing, you’re going to be there for at least this year, and hopefully four years while you’re getting your degree - so just have fun!

Erika - When you first get there, exchange contact information with as many people as possible when you meet. I know for me, going to get food or going somewhere that I didn’t know was super stressful so having someone to text and make a plan made it less uncomfortable.

Michelle - Be yourself, put yourself out there. Definitely exchange contact information when you can. Don’t be afraid, I regret not talking to people. I ended up making the most friends in my classes because it wasn't as overwhelming.

Settling in on campus looks a little different this year than it usually does. Tomorrow the OCM Ambassadors are weighing in on what you can expect from college in 2021. And don’t forget to follow @ocmcollegelife on Instagram to stay on top of all of our Decision Day discounts and giveaways!
