The feeling that you matter, that you can elicit change, make people listen is a powerful feeling. A feeling that makes you want to stay at a university and continue to be a part of something that will forever remind you of college.

I tell my students to stay conscientious. I tell them to strive for their goals and passions while also keeping an open mind. I tell them to prioritize their learning but not at the expense of their physical and mental wellbeing. In the end, though, my only wish is that they choose a school where they get the most out of their learning, and hopefully they will take a little less time to get there than I did.

Mid-Facebook procrastination session recently, I came across a video titled “[Graphic] Footage Recovered of ISIS Butchering 1500 Hostages Like Cattle.” The picture preview under the post was of what looked like a twenty-something, likely Arab, crouching and grimacing straight at the camera with a man behind him sprawled on the dirt with what looked like a blood splotch on his bare foot.

When speaking with Mr. Rankin this past weekend, he was adamant on conveying this anecdote and its importance to me. He instructed that I listen closely, affirming that it is perfectly fine to be undecided on a choice of major and convincing me that there is no proven formula to determine the correct career path.
