More than I could ever ask
As the year comes to a close, the only thing that resounds in my mind is "Where did it all go?" I've become fearful that I've missed out on something, because time has flown by so fast. I need only to take a few moments to realize that all but the words "missing out" can be used to describe my experience at Centre. I've made a list of some of my best memories.
From the beginning I tried to get involved, so I ran for Student Government Association and became a representative. I've truly enjoyed this. SGA has given me an outlet for my leadership desires as well as an opportunity to serve my classmates.
I volunteered my time at a local vet clinic and there's nothing that I'm more proud of. I spend my weeks with some of the most talented technicians and veterinarians in the state. I've learned so much already, and I'm only a freshman. This clinic has given me a purpose for studying. I look forward to each and every day that I'm able to spend at the clinic. It has assured me that I need to become a vet and that being a vet would best fulfill my desires.
I was able to study abroad as a freshman in Puerto Rico. I was exposed early on to research methods and gained an appreciation for the environment after seeing such a wonderful place.
I've been able to meet with my professors and talk with them about anything. I've talked about everything from class, to my views on life and learning with my professors.
Centre has allowed me to study abroad for my next semester in France.
Lastly, I am able to complete research this summer at Centre.
What I'm trying to convey is that at a place like Centre, the opportunities are boundless. I've been neither hindered nor restricted from anything that I've desired to do. All my needs and wants were met and were exceeded. Centre has given me far more than I could ever ask from another university or college. Centre is unique in its ability to captivate and serve its students. Often, we as students complain about various aspects of the college, which is normal. Every college has its complaints. What other colleges don't have...is...Centre. Centre is more than a place. It's an experience. One that those lucky enough to have, should cherish. Already it seems like I'm on the verge of graduating. I hope the next three years will be as wonderful and excellent as my first year has. My Centre LIFE...has been phenomenal.
P.S. I'll be doing one last entry from home this summer.
