Hi everyone! My name is Brooke, and I will be blogging on Beakerpedia for this semester.
I am currently a senior from the Dayton, Ohio area. When I came on campus my senior year of high school I fell in love with the campus and how beautiful the campus was, the trees were different shades of orange and red. When I went on my campus tour I could not believe how friendly everyone was. Everyone was happy to see us, to tell us all about the campus, and more than happy to help us with whatever we needed. I felt before I had decided to attend here, they had already welcomed me into the Eagle family.
I knew from the beginning of my college career, that I wanted to be involved with campus life as much as possible. I am involved in many things on campus, I joined a sorority my freshman year, and throughout that time, I learned how to be a leader by being on many committees and holding an executive council position within the chapter. For the past 3 years I spend my afternoons at the University Farm, where I am a proud member of the Equestrian Team and also the president. For the past 2 years, I have had the opportunity to help incoming freshman with being a SOAR leader. As a college student, I know funds can be tight, so I also work on campus in the Office of Communications and Marketing as a student employee.
I am blogging to help you with the transition to college. Some of the topics I will be covering will be about food and dining services, housing on campus, getting involved at MSU, how to get a work study, financial aid, paying your bill, and how to understand your class schedule. Stay posted to learn these things and much more!
