My College Memory

I graduated from a very small high school where I knew everyone. I decided to attend a state university about two hours away. The only other person I knew going to this university was someone that I would see occasionally and didn’t know very well. I was comfortable in my small-town setting and was completely apprehensive about going away.

The minute I stepped foot on campus, I realized I was in the right place. I immediately signed up for activities and clubs that I was interested in. I was elected to the Student Government Association my freshman year, and I also joined a sorority and took on leadership roles there as well. To this day, I am still very close with many of my college friends. The experiences that I was able to gain throughout college have helped me throughout my career.
