During I had the opportunity to enroll in classes at the National University of Ireland in Galway. As an accounting major, taking a course on global healthcare was a new experience. The topics we discussed were very intriguing and allowed me to step out of my comfort zone.

I joined my first service trip out of pure curiosity. I had heard from many friends who had gone on past service trips that they can be a life-changing experience. They could never tell me why though.

You are about to read poems by the First Year students in Prof. Tina Waldeier Bizzarro’s First Year Connections Seminar. The poems were inspired by author Mary Pipher’s own “I Am from” poem in her book, The Middle of Everywhere, which examines the challenges that refugees confront in pursuing the American Dream. The students penned their own “I Am from” poems for the First Year Connections Seminar, which helps them make connections to their new home at Rosemont College and to the larger world beyond.

I’ve been doing my job for some time. Going into my 18th year at Rosemont in fact. One of my strengths is preparedness. As good as I’ve gotten at “flying by the seat of my pants,” I am by nature a prepared person. I have learned to be prepared generally gives you the ability to anticipate things (good or bad), and allows for greater flexibility and capability in dealing with those things that don’t go quite as planned. So, despite my experience and preparedness, even I was caught off guard by the amount of changes that occurred especially this summer but even within the last year.

On our first day of training, counselors were told, “At the end of the day, they’re just kids.” Camp Twitch and Shout is a place where kids are honest, straightforward and quirky. You know, they’re the type of kids who scare us half to death with their ideas and their sassiness. Almost like us a short time ago. Like all kids.

Rosemont College has been my home for the past four years. I am still in disbelief that in just a few weeks I will receive my Bachelor’s Degree. As a freshman, I honestly never thought this day would come. I can remember the seniors that year telling me how fast it all went, and I did not believe them until now. Alongside my friends I have created memories that will stay with me forever. My college experience would not have been the same, if it weren’t for the people I met here.

As we come to another celebratory moment in the lives of the Schools of Graduate and Professional Studies (SGPS) students, I would be remiss if I didn’t write about our graduates’ success as working adult learners. What seemed to some two or more years ago - a never-ending scholastic journey - have arrived at their educational, professional, and personal destinations both relieved and reveled.
