Being from Findlay, I have practically grown up on the campus of University of Findlay. I have such a love for this school, and that’s why I decided to continue my studies here! I am majoring in psychology with the intention of going into Doctor of Occupational Therapy Program. My first year is going to be exciting, crazy, and everything in between; I cannot wait to share it with you all!
Looking back on my freshman year at Findlay, I have learned so much. It would be almost impossible to write about how many lessons I have learned my first year on campus! As the end of the school year approaches, and the stress of exams is weighing on me heavily, I thought it would be a great opportunity to reflect on all that I have learned and experienced this year.
Choices: It is no surprise that college freshman are not noted for making the best choices. This is no wonder, however. Most freshmen are almost fully dependent on their parents for the first 18 years, and then immediately become autonomous the minute we step foot on campus. This is awesome! College gives you the opportunity to become your own unique individual. With individualism, though, comes choices. Making the right choice in every … Read More »
It’s hard to believe, but not everyone who goes to UF has been to one of my favorite spots on campus: the Mazza Museum. It definitely ranks as a hot spot on the admissions tour. I mean, it is a pretty impressive place for future Oilers to see. But, no matter what your major, current Oilers can find a reason to enjoy our campus gem.
So, in case you don’t know, the Mazza Museum is the world’s first, largest and most diverse collection of art from picture books. When you were a little kid having books read to you by your parents, grandparents or teachers, you may not have realized that the illustrations in the book had to be created by an artist. The Mazza Museum has a collection of over 12,000 original pieces of art from those very books, including Arthur, … Read More »
Let’s be honest– one of the most important things for a college student to know is where to eat. Eating is one of my favorite things to do. When you’re studying all day long, it’s so nice to grab a bite of great food with some great friends. As a freshman, it has taken me a little bit to figure out my favorite spots to hit when I am looking for something to eat, but luckily for Findlay students, we have lots of great choices right here on campus!
The Refinery- My personal favorite place to eat on campus is at the The Refinery in the Center for Student Life. For those of you who do not know, this building is brand new this year. With the addition of a new building for the College of Business, we now also have … Read More »
I cannot believe that I have already made it through my first semester here at Findlay and am diving right into my second! Although this semester has just begun, it has already proven that it will be very exciting. So far, I think that I am really going to enjoy all of my classes this semester. It is so refreshing to be able to receive a whole new schedule at the start of the semester. This is something that I love about college compared to high school. With a new schedule, however, comes establishing a whole new routine. This can be exciting for some, but terrifying for others. Luckily, I have a few tips and tricks that either type of person can find useful to start spring semester with a bang!
Start off the semester organized – There can’t be anything worse … Read More »
Since the beginning of this semester, a lot of things have changed. I would be lying if I said that one of those things wasn’t my motivation but hey, that’s natural! As a young adult, I have developed immensely in this short amount of time. Being away from my parents, in a new setting, and having to manage time by myself has taught me a lot about myself thus far. I sometimes wish I could write a note to my past self to read before I started my freshman year. Self-reflection is a wonderful thing. So as the end of the semester approaches, I wanted to take some time to write a letter to future freshman on all the ins-and-outs of starting your first semester at the University of Findlay!
Dear incoming freshman,
You’ve made it! You’re finally on your own. Now … Read More »
