#ichoseWCSU I chose WestConn because it reminded me a lot of my small, private high school. With small classes, it is easier to get to know your professors and vice versa. There is a sense of familiarity and friendliness on campus because of the camaraderie, which really makes WestConn feel like a true second home. I also love all of the opportunities WestConn has to offer; I feel like a big fish in a small pond rather than a small fish in a big ocean.
Words of Wisdom: Take classes that you are interested in especially if your major is undecided. Get involved as soon as possible, but prioritize and balance your responsibilities and personal life. Most importantly, make the most of your college experience, this is your home for the next four years and it goes by SO fast.
“Twenty years from now [or four years from now when you graduate] you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
