Unlike most students, my first day at the Univeristy of Minnesota wasn't in early Septemeber. As a Post-Secondary Enrollment Option student, my first day at the Univeristy of Minnesota was actually two years ago. Now, in my first year as a true (full-time) student here at the University of Minnesota, I cannot help but realize the world of differences that are present when one lives on campus.
From the social atmosphere, to the internal struggles one faces, the experiences that I am forging now will stick with me for the majority of my college career. Addtionally, I feel that this process has a maturing effect, in that it is a process that one needs to go through in getting ready for the real world.
