  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Taking chances in college can shape future

Take a chance.

I took a chance the first time I stepped into my first class at the University as a freshman not knowing what was going to become of my experience and education. I didn’t know what to expect or what the work was going to consist of. I didn’t expect to get the general gist of what it takes to be a college student. But I do now. And the power of coffee.

I took a chance interning for a newspaper in Defiance, Ohio this summer completely petrified of what I was going to write about, let alone meeting the other professional journalists. How could I not think about making a mistake and then being looked down upon by everyone? I needed to make an effort and I did.

I took a chance writing for The BG News three years ago completely uncertain of if I would stick with it. It wasn’t made clear that the people I would meet would become not only some great friends of mine, but incredible role models. It’s because of these people that I kept writing for the newspaper until this very day.

The chances you take during your college experience will shape the way you carry on with your education and will ultimately brighten your future. If I would’ve never taken the chance of stepping into my first class as a freshman in college, I would be stuck working at a job that I hate. If I didn’t take the chance of interning at a newspaper, I wouldn’t understand what it takes to be a professional journalist. If I never took the chance at writing for The BG News and sticking to it, my life as a college student would be lost. I wouldn’t have met all of the amazing people I have and I wouldn’t have had any experience before my internship. These chances have contributed deeply into the person I am today and I wouldn’t take back any of them.

So when you’re meeting new people, getting ready to join an organization, applying for a job, etc., take that chance because it could define who you are. Be the person you’re set out to be without any regrets
