So far, Minnesota State University, Mankato has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am learning that everyone is here because they want something better for the future. We've got big ideas, and we want to share them with the world. The professors that I have are extremely friendly, dedicated to the education of their students, and are very accessible. My peers have been more diverse than I was expecting, and that's amazing. Diversity displays open-mindedness and acceptance. I have found a few little niches for myself along the way as well; it's amazing how easy it is to get involved! I can't wait to see what the future holds for me here at MSU.
