I love school. There, I said it. I love being in an environment that is geared towards learning; I love being around people that, for the most part, want to learn as much as I do; I love being able to question just for the sake of having a question, and most often being praised for doing so. Where else will I get all of that in a single place?
My time at Ferris has been one of my best. I’ve met people that I consider some of my best friends, and I hope to keep in contact with for the rest of my life. I’ve learned things that will be applied to my career (actually using something I learned, unlike that chem class in high school…). And, by far my favorite, I’ve had the opportunity to impact people and groups around me by giving my suggestions, opinions, and input.
My experiences here will not be forgotten; neither by me, my peers, or my instructors. The time I’ve spent here has been well worth it, and definitely something to «write home about.» However, it is time for me to move on.
Looking back at my past and knowing that every step along the way was worth it and well-placed; there is nothing for me to regret. As I look forward to my future, moving back home and starting my full career, I feel confident. I am prepared and ready for anything that comes my way.
In closing, my college experience has not and will not be taken for granted. There are many great people that I have met, friends, peers, instructors, that have helped me get this far and to keep going. The classes, school events and extra-curriculars were well-received and, mostly, enjoyed. Again, there is nothing for me to regret.
