Starting the semester

Hi all,
It’s Wednesday of the first week of classes, and the last semester of my senior year.
I’m both excited and nervous to begin this semester, given my course load and the much-anticipated graduation that follows.
That being said, I want to take a minute to share something that I really enjoy about the first week of classes here at Muskingum.
A lot of the professors that I have had use their first few days of class to provide some insight into the importance of a college education, to inspire us to do well or try our best. 
Today one of my professors was talking about how people always say that you need a college degree to get a good job. She then pointed out that this isn’t true. It isn’t the degree that equips people to get better jobs, it’s the skills and education they receive in the pursuit of the degree. Getting a better job relies on the ability to learn things quickly, to be flexible and have some base knowledge of various things. I think this is one of the things Muskingum does really well with its liberal arts requirements–prepares students to succeed in many different fields. I think that’s what all good colleges should do, really.
Just some food for thought, especially for those in search of a college to call their own.

Have a great week,
Kelsey
