My freshmen year is coming to a close, and as cliché as this may sound , Utica College has changed me for the better. Although my stay has just begun, this small but not-so-small place has taught me knowledge within the classroom, and also knowledge outside of equations , writing skills and all the other occupational skills we hope to acquire when we enter college. This knowledge that was provided to me was about me. It seems crazy, but Utica College gave me knowledge about myself.
I know that sounds even crazier that an institution taught me about myself, and none of the information that was taught has anything to do with books, but UC did just that. It provided me with new friends, poetry events , monologues , talent shows , forms , fraternities , sororities , walks for different causes and so many different things I really don’t have the time to speak about.
Before I stepped foot on campus, I was all about football, and only football. With these new influences on my life, I’m now about football , poetry , owning my own fashion company , writing blogs, and yes, making sure that my grades are where they need to be. I’m thankful for this new thought process UC has given me. And I guess the saying is true: “When you think you know everything about yourself, you learn something else … It just takes the right time , people and place to reveal it.”
