[Graphic: HOW DO YOU PICK A COLLEGE THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU?]
[Sawyer]: When deciding and picking a school that you want to like, go to and attend, it’s really important to kind of configure all the different aspects to really find a school that fits you and works for you. You might know a lot of people going to different schools and then think, Oh, because I have a friend here, I want to go here but it’s not always about that. Academics, It’s super important in terms of deciding for a school that something important to me. I wanted a school that had a lot of school spirit, so I was super excited to find a campus that kind of cultivated that for me. That aside, too, there’s always like financial aspects as well and a lot of things to configure when you are deciding what school is the best school for you. I think it’s really important to focus on yourself in that way. Kind of the best time to be a little bit selfish because this is your college experience and your four years of school.
[Graphic: WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE FOR FINDING COMMUNITY ON CAMPUS?]
[Sawyer]: Yeah, I feel like there’s a lot of different ways to kind of better and find that community aspect here on campus. I always really encourage people to kind of be comfortable getting uncomfortable, taking advantage of the opportunities we have. As a freshman, I love going to things like Yoga on The Blue and Movies on The Blue. It gave me a lot of chances to meet new people. I think it’s super helpful to make a community aspect that way.
[Graphic: WHAT’S A CHALLENGE THAT YOU FACED IN YOUR FIRST YEAR?]
[Sawyer]: When I was first starting college, I think it’s really that transitional period, there’s always that kind of case of imposter syndrome. That’s something that comes when coming to college and to school. I remember a couple of weeks into my first semester here at Boise State, I was feeling kind of nervous with the homework load and things like that kind of getting adjusted to that new schedule, not having a car at school or things like that. It’s kind of minor things you had in high school. I was kind of jumping in headfirst and learning to get a little bit uncomfortable, which I think helps with that transition overall.
