University Ambassador Chad says, “Don’t just focus on making friends but focus on making valuable connections that will propel you to your dreams.” Alumni Association Board Member adds, “Don’t be in such a rush to enter the “real world”. Enjoy college, get involved, and build relationships. They will pay off in the end.” #countdowntillfall#fgcu#tipoftheday#6days
We often gain dollars and lose sense. ▫️
The moment you throw a dollar sign in front of something, rationality goes out the window. 🤷🏻♀️💸
Learning about how and why we behave could help us make better decisions in the future.. orrr just momentarily provide some entertainment 🤓

Exciting developments at #fgculibrary coming Fall 2018! 👐🏼
We received funds to start a reserve textbook collection. We have purchased nearly 300 high demand/high cost textbooks for undergraduate students that you can check out for two hours to use in the library. Depending on the enrollment in the course, more than one copy of a title might be purchased. 📚 Search our catalog or contact us to see if we have the book you need!
We are working closely with the bookstore to provide one more way #fgcu is helping students succeed by reducing textbook expenses. 💸. #textbookaffordability#floridagulfcoastuniversity#studentsuccess#textbooktuesdays
Reason #6 : Access to FitPlans!! CHAARG puts out a number of fitplans throughout the year to get you in killer shape, back into a routine ++ in contact with hundreds of girls from across the country! It is so awesome to see how other girls do with the fitplans + to be able to interact with each other, especially through our #inCHAARG instas!! Fitplans also come with lots of great nutritional advice, new recipes to try + a week long meal plan! Alsooo possibly my favorite part of a FitPlan is all the new CHAARG swag I get 😍😍 #obsessed

Honors Summer Experience, Staff Edition: Madison Ray, Coordinator of Programming & Outreach
One of Madison’s first weekends in Florida she was invited to Cooper Hawks Winery in Naples as a media influencer to cover Tyler Florence’s exclusive wine launch. She had a fantastic time eating delicious food and enjoying the great company. •
Aside from working hard in the Honors College Office planning events, Madison has been experiencing her first Florida summer as one should; by the pool, at the ocean, exploring downtown, watching for alligators while fishing, and admiring the beautiful sunsets and wildlife. She has been scouring the town for the best gluten-free eats and natural stores. Also, her first summer post-graduate school has involved a lot of reading (just for fun!), she is currently 11 books in and is ready for more! #fgcuhonors#honorssummerexperience#fgcu#thefgcueffect
This morning I would like to introduce you to the Panhellenic Executive Council! We are a team of women who make up the governing body of all six Panhellenic organizations we have on campus here at FGCU. This week is intensive training for recruitment but we have collectively been working all year to prepare for 2018 Fall Formal Recruitment! #joinfgcupan#fgcu#fgcupanhellenic
When you’re at the beach ready to do a workout and you find a bench you take advantage of said bench🤷🏼♀️ just a couple of exercises you can do anywhere you find a bench, office chair, couch, large rock, tree stump, small sturdy coffee table, just multiple things you can use for this workout! (Oh and I’m wearing a T-shirt around my face because we’ve got red tide going on down here so it kinda smelled awful🤷🏼♀️ but ya know, gotta do it for the gram😂)
👉🏼Bulgarian Split Squat- make sure your front knees are not going past those toes and you’re chest is up! And try to engage your core so you can keep your balance!!! 👉🏼Push-ups- I hate pushups...like I seriously hate them so much. But I’m trying to build a stronger upper body and man oh man are these babies great! Just make sure your engaging your core and keeping your spine in line. And please don’t move your head like I do. It made me feel closer to the ground every time but it’s cheating and not good for your neck
👉🏼Tricep Dips- I tried to give two variations for this but I knew my form was going to go immediately downhill when I lifted my legs up so I want back to having them down on the ground. Whichever is more comfortable for you!
👉🏼Hip Dips- I like doing these because they’re so versatile. You can do them in a side plank, with one knee down, on the bench. Maybe it’ll be my next video...🤔
👉🏼Bench Jumps- a little different from a box jump only because I’m on a bench lol. I don’t know why but I’m always scared to do the first one of these. I feel like my feet are going to slip right out from under me and I fall flat on my face. But hey it’s all good!
As always if you have any questions for modifications for injury’s or progressions or anything of the like please let me know and I’m happy to give those for you!!! Have a wonderful Tuesday💙💚 .
University Ambassador Cami wants incoming students to know, “The dryers in SOVI don’t always take the full hour you pay for. They run on high heat and might shrink clothes that your washer at home didn’t shrink. It might be a good idea to split the cost and time with a friend until you find what works for you!” #countdowntillfall#fgcu#tipoftheday#6days
