Why Findlay is my perfect fit, and may be yours!
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 this to try to make your decision more clear. Let me help you with that! Here are some reasons why I believe that Findlay could be the choice for you:
- #OILERNATION– Here at Findlay, our students are so close. Whether you are are an artist, an athlete or anything in between; we are family. There is so much diversity packed into our relatively small campus. I feel like I can create a connection with most anyone that I cross paths with, and that is something I love about my school. #OilerNation is a wonderful community! Recently, I participated in OilerThon along with sorority sisters, athletes and many other Oilers that all raised money for the kids. Together, we raised over $40,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals! This is just one of the many programs we do on campus to come together and make a difference. I am so thankful I got to be part of such a great event!
- Amazing Programs– Interested in becoming a veterinarian? There’s a pre-veterinary program for that. Want to be a pharmacist? There’s a Doctor of Pharmacy Program for that. Interested in physical therapy or occupational therapy? You guessed it; we have those too. There are so many unique and successful programs offered at Findlay. I chose to come here because I wanted to be part of the challenging Doctor of
Occupational Therapy Program offered at UF. The opportunities here are endless!
- Personal Attention– One of the benefits of going to a relatively small school is the one-on-one attention that you can receive from the professors. Unlike many bigger schools, my largest class is around 30 people. Professors and classmates know each other by name, which is such a great feeling! We’re just the right size to form those bonds. And having your professors say hello to you as you pass them on campus is pretty neat, too. Below is a selfie that I took earlier this year with one of my classes!
- Faith-based University– The University of Findlay was founded by the City of Findlay and the Churches of God, General Conference, but this does not mean that our campus is solely Christian. Findlay fosters respect for everyone’s beliefs and opinions. Feeling accepted is an amazing feeling! If you want to deepen your faith here, there are many ways to do that.
I am so happy that I chose Findlay. I have found my home and I can’t imagine being anywhere else. Wherever you chose to go to school, I hope that you find your home as well; here at UF, you are always welcome!
