What-up my fellow Wildcats!
After a slow start in my studies, because it had been almost 15 years since high school, I am rolling into my fourth year at WSU and my second degree. I feel privileged every day that I have the opportunity to go to college and improve myself through learning and engagement on campus.
Life can be frustrating. I know, because I have had my fair share of blips on the radar and unexpected events. However, I never look back at any part of my life with regret or disappointment.
Everything that has happened to me in life has brought me to the moment I live in today, and this moment is amazing. I encourage all of you to also look at your hardships as learning experiences and cherish each event, good and bad.
After traveling all over the U.S., moving to Tokyo at 19 (alone), breaking up with my high school sweetheart (after 11 years) and finding the love of my life, I’ve found nothing has given me more pleasure than the knowledge I have gained while being in college.
Higher education, while it may not all be beneficial, has provided me with a new perspective on life. Many of the classes I’ve taken have changed my way of thinking and have made me a better person. Through the variety of elective classes, I learned I have an ability to write, which has brought me to The Signpost.
I love to meet new people, and man oh man, The Signpost has provided me the opportunity to meet hundreds of individuals who solidify for me what a fantastic choice I have made getting involved on campus.
And it’s not just the interesting people I have met through interviews or the networking I’ve done, which I believe will help me in my future. It’s also the close-knit support system I have had in The Signpost office, a safe environment that I now get to create for my team as their editor in chief.
I would like to ask all of you to become part of our support system by picking up The Signpost or checking out our website (www.wsusignpost.com). Your fellow students at The Signpost are working hard to bring you the news on your campus and the surrounding Ogden area. Try it on your cell phone. We’re mobile-friendly now.
The Signpost team strives to bring you news you can use, and with your interaction and feedback The Signpost can be the place where WSU community members know they can get the best, most up-to-date and entertaining information about their environment.
I look forward to meeting more of my fellow Wildcats during my tenure as editor in chief. I’ll be the one strolling through campus wearing the rainbow moon boots once winter hits, so you can’t miss me. Stop me anytime to let me know what you would like to see in The Signpost and to give me your feedback.
I wish nothing but the best to all of you throughout your journey at Weber State University and in your future life adventures.
