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!
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 »
For me, choosing which college to attend was an easy decision. I have known since the seventh grade that I wanted to go to the University of Findlay. Findlay is my home, in more ways than one. Yes, I was born and raised a “Findlayite.” My family has lived in this town for generations upon generations; I don’t know anything else. This is not the only reason, however, that I feel Findlay is my home. When I am on campus, I get a sense of home and I can pursue my career in an excellent program. I am confident that this is where I belong, and where I am supposed to be. It just feels right and I am fortunate for that. For others, choosing a school is not as easy as it was for me. Perhaps you are reading … Read More »
One of my passions is living a health-conscious lifestyle. I believe that maintaining good physical and mental health overall makes you a happier person. I strive to make this one of my top priorities. Living in a dorm, it is not simple to maintain routines, especially as a freshman. Many things change quickly in your life. It is hard to balance your school work, social life and health. Sometimes, it seems like living healthy is the first thing to be abandoned once moving on campus. As I try to reestablish my routines, I wanted to share some easy tips that make feeling healthy during freshman year a breeze!
Get plenty of sleep – We’ve all heard that getting eight hours of sleep is essential for our minds and bodies, but not everyone knows the serous effects of sleep deprivation. In my general … Read More »
Before I moved in, you could ask just about anyone I knew, “Do you think Tatum will join Greek life?” and their immediate answer would be, “No way!” I could not see myself being part of a sorority; it was not my crowd. That quickly changed, however, a few days after I moved in.
My mom and dad were both part of Greek life during college and my brother is currently in a fraternity. I have heard countless stories from them about how they have made lasting friendships and memories through it. I started to see many signs around campus about joining Greek life, and began to consider the idea. Finally, I decided to go through recruitment.
Recruitment was a week filled with learning about both sororities we have on campus (Sigma Kappa and Phi Sigma Sigma) and meeting the girls that are … Read More »
