Olivia Spoelstra '17
Major: Elementary Education
I was so scared, nervous, and anxious about my transition to college, but
after I stepped onto the CCU campus for Weekend of Welcome, all of that
anxiety and nerves disappeared. I felt so welcomed by every person I met,
and I had an instant connection with my roommates. One of my biggest
fears when I thought about transitioning into college was dealing with
homesickness, but I
have gained this amazing sense of independence that I know I didn’t
have before. More >
