New resolutions

The new year is here, and for some, that means making new goals and fresh starts for the year.

Some Ferris students have made some resolutions to take advantage of the beginning of another year. Whether it relates to focusing more on their own well-being, refocusing on academic achievement, pushing for physical fitness or having more fun.

“I’m not usually one for New Year’s resolutions but this year my resolution is to love myself more and to focus on myself. I’ve come to the realization that I’m still young and have a lot of life left before me. People always seem to be more worried about others and forget to think about themselves. 2016 is going to be the year I think about myself and what I want in life.” – History senior Megan Brown

“If I made a resolution it would be to continue to make it in nursing school. Also, maybe push an album or two out with my band as well.” – Nursing junior Nathan Babcock

“I possibly have high blood pressure so my resolution is to get in the best shape of my life. Usually I make one or two more later on, but that’s my single big one for the year.” – Optometry junior Dylan Williams

“Well, I failed a class last semester, so I hope to not fail another class! Okay, I got a D+, but it’s considered a fail.” – Surveying engineering sophomore Michelle Thebo

“I really want to hike the North Country Trail this summer with my friends. It’s a long stretch of trail that runs from upstate New York to North Dakota. The Outdoor Club actually works on sections of the trail within Michigan so a few of us have planned to hike the trail that we did work on this past year.” – Pre-dental junior Autumn Mirkle
