Last year was an exciting year for me, academically. My first semester was all about adjustment. I had to effectively manage my time, live on my own, meet new people, and keep up with college courses. However, I would describe my experience as successful. One of the most important things I discovered was how, where, and when I study best. These skills are key to my success here and I will carry what I have learned about myself into second semester. Also, I have met some amazing friends in my first semester. Being a part of Club Tennis and the Mount Leadership Society Scholars have been the highlights of my first semester. I have met so many great people that really help make this place feel like home. My first semester has been an amazing experience, and I can’t wait for what’s to come in my future here at OSU.
