Athens, OH 3 February 2020 –
I have just started my last semester ever here at Ohio University. It’s a bittersweet time as I find myself talking with first or second year students telling them I wish I was in your shoes and that I could do it all over again.
However, I am eagerly waiting on graduation so I can go out and put all of this hard work and training to good use. I am planning on heading to Morgantown, West Virginia and starting my role as a Manufacturing Engineer. I will always be able to call Ohio University home but I look forward to starting a new journey where I get to experience new and exciting opportunities.
I have already signed a lease in Morgantown which is super exciting. I managed to get a two-bedroom apartment super close to the football stadium so I can continue to enjoy the college sports scene and maybe a touch of college life here and there. I will always be pulling for the Bobcats but now I will have two teams to cheer on during game day.
If I could leave those first and second year students with one thing, it’s to enjoy your time at this amazing school. You will make memories and friends to last a life time. There is truly no other place like our little slice of Appalachia. Enjoy your days, weeks and years and be excited about where the road may take you.
