I enjoy being apart of the campus life and having a school family. I went through so much during fall 2014 semester. I went to three funerals in three weeks during finals in December. The first funeral was my god-brother, who was shoot and killed at gunpoint in the back of the head. He was only twenty-one years old. Then, my god-uncle past away naturally, but suddenly. He saw his family one last time before passing in the living room of his home. He gave the best advice and had the most in depth conversation a great mind could imagine. Lastly, my fellow classmate that I would see everyday in English class, or during work study in the science department was killed in a car accident. After we had finished finals for that week in December, he was going to a party to celebrate. The car rolled over on his side splitting his skull. The whole English class and Marygrove student body was devastated. Through all the darkness that was surrounding my life, Marygrove was there. They supported me when I thought all was lost and wanted to give up completely. My academic advisor Dr. Page, my success coach Diane Clark, and many more helped me when I thought I was helpless. I was able to pass that semester with all B's. I will never forget that kind of support because it was so personal. They took the time out to go the extra mile, beyond caring. I am proud to be a Marygrove Mustang. Go green and gold!!!!!!!!!
