“Enjoy your college years because they fly by fast,” is the saying that everyone who has come before you reiterates as you begin your journey as a college freshman. As I’m nearing the end of my time as a Texas State student I can say this has been the fastest two years of my life thus far.

I graduated high school and began college peak pandemic. My first two years in college were not very typical. As a freshman, I started at a smaller school thinking this was what I would have liked more than a big university. However, as I neared the end of the year I knew I wanted more out of my college experience. I ended up transferring to a community college in my hometown because I didn’t see the point in transferring to a bigger school if I still wasn’t going to be able to have the traditional college experience I’d been longing for. I’m extremely thankful that I decided to do so because I learned a lot about myself and the direction in which I wanted my life to go from that point forward. When looking at universities to transfer to for my junior and senior years, Texas State was a no-brainer and I can’t even explain the joy I felt once I was accepted as a transfer student.

My time at Texas State University has been beyond fulfilling and even though I don’t regret any decisions I made before transferring here, I would have done anything to have more time as a Bobcat. Joining The University Star’s engagement team played a big part in my college experience. I loved having the chance to work side by side on a team of like-minded individuals and I’m so grateful to have been able to be a part of this organization. It is the end of an era!
