A Muskie Leap

Starting at a new school, whether that be a high school or a new university can be very intimidating for most students. You just have to trust your gut and take that leap of faith that everything will work out. I know this first hand. Though I’ve been a part of the Cambridge City School district my whole life, I took that leap of faith when I choose to attend the largest university in the country; not only was the size of the school overwhelming, but also I knew literally no one. This was a huge change in my life, one that I now know that I wasn’t ready for. Thankfully my younger sister decided she would attend Muskingum University. She loved it! She would call me and tell me about her day and how awesome all of her professors were and how she was so glad she had chosen Muskingum. I wanted that, I wanted that same experience she was having at college, an experience that after two years I had not had at my state school. So, I took another giant leap of faith and decided to not only transfer home to Muskingum, but to change my major as well from biology to English after two years at a school where I just wasn’t happy. For anyone who is facing a huge change in life especially when it comes to school, take that leap. You might have to fall a couple of times before landing solidly on your feet, but the journey to finding your future is just part of the destination. I stumbled for two years to find out what I really needed and wanted from school and now I’m happier than I ever have been in just the short time I have been attending Muskingum University. GO MUSKIES!!!
