    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.
