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!
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 »
If I asked you, “What would you rather be doing than studying right now?,” most of us could probably think of 1,001 ways to answer that question. Perhaps you are even putting it off at this moment to read this post! Let’s be honest with ourselves and admit that studying is hard. But not all aspects of it have to be difficult. To make things easier, find a favorite location on campus to learn!
Atmosphere is very important while studying. Visiting a space where you feel comfortable, and that has few distractions, will help you get the most out of your study time. Previously, my favorite place to study was located in my home. I spent many hours studying (and yes, cramming the night before a test) in that room! Now that I have moved to campus, I’ve really made it … Read More »
On my very first day of class here at the University of Findlay, I was asked a question in my Orientation to Psychology class that really struck me. After the class got settled, went over the syllabus, and attempted to learn each other’s names, Dr. Mata informed us that we were receiving our first assignment; a wash of disappointment came across each and every face in the classroom. What I didn’t know was this assignment may end up shaping how I look at being a student for the rest of my academic career. Dr. Mata asked us to answer a question in one paragraph on a piece of paper: “Why are you here?”
What was my immediate reaction you may wonder? To get my Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree. I’ve known that I’ve wanted to become an occupational therapist since I … Read More »
