College. Who cares where you end up, right? Wrong.
Attending college was one of the single greatest experiences of my lifetime. Though terrified at first, I rose to the challenges and grew from each new experience. I was able to study what I loved, evolve socially with friends and learn about myself in the process.
A little about my background: I graduated from Michigan State University with a BA in Journalism, specializing in Apparel and Textile Design.
While being amongst an ocean of freshman at a Big 10 school was intimidating, I look back fondly knowing that it was the right choice of school.
Ironically, it wasn't my choice at all. My parents insisted that I attend a larger school with a campus feel, while I begged to attend a smaller, private institution in a city.
Luckily, those who write the checks make the decisions and, in my case, it was dear old mom and dad.
I suppose the moral of the story, Fastwebbers, is to let others share in your decision. You may be surprised when others know what’s best. I know I was and still am frequently.
Good luck in your search!
