My undergraduate career at Ferris has been many things.
I’ve enjoyed my time and had difficult situations to deal with. I’ve learned and grown, stumbled and righted myself. It has been a process of ongoing improvement.
My experience has been unique from yours; everyone’s time here is different.
But there are a few simple ideas that I have tried to embrace and are hopefully common among other students and even faculty and staff.
Start early. It’s never too late, but just get going soon.
A great night is worth a less-than-great morning.
Have fun. We all have different ideas of what “fun” is, but whatever it means for you, have it… a lot!
Have ideas. Good or bad, ideas are how things start.
Be grateful. Thank you still means something.
I’m grateful for those involved in my tenure here at Ferris. I can think of few other places I could have been and seen, felt, experienced or learned as I did here.
Most importantly of all, look forward.
The best is yet to come.
