This semester has really challenged me, academically and personally. I had already known that classes here at OSU were going to be challenging, but I didn’t realize how much I would have to work in order to achieve the grades I wanted, and to be truly successful in my classes. I found that I was capable of working harder than I could have possibly imagined, and that I successfully adapted to the new environment. This semester, I also found that the sky is the limit when it comes to various experiences that enhance your learning. Internships and research opportunities are every where, and it’s up to me to take advantage of those opportunities if I am to continue to grow. I also become an active member of Pre-Vet Club and Zoology Club, where I found many students with similar interests, and had the opportunity to meet people in animal related careers. Overall, this semester went well, and I hope the next one turns out to be even better.
