This spring is my first semester as a transfer student at Prescott College. It kicked off with a backpacking trip through the Grand Canyon (which was amazing) and now I’m taking courses in interpersonal communication and Central American history. So far I have been gaining new perspectives on the world around me, as well as insight into my own state of self-awareness. One of the most rewarding aspects of my attendance at this school so far has been the connections that I have made with other like-minded individuals. I have made more friends in the last few months than I have in the last few years. An interesting aspect in making all of these connections is noticing the individuality in each person who’s evolved their own perspective and worldview. Despite any differences that may separate us, we are all united in the fact that we are self aware of our impact on the world around us, and we are all trying to figure out how we can make that impact a positive one.
