    High school was when I truly fell in love with the sport of volleyball. My overall high school experience was highlighted by fierce competition, rivalry games and, above all, the close connections I built with my fellow teammates as we endured 6 am workouts and bumpy bus rides.

    I’ll never forget hopping off the plane after a long vacation during the winter break of my senior year of high school. After being out of the country, I quickly turned my phone on to receive the text messages and phone calls I missed over the past two weeks.

    Emmy Minturn

    I learned about Dance Marathon my freshman year at one of the activity fairs. Although I didn’t have dance marathon at my high school, which many do, DPUDM is one of the largest and fastest growing organizations on our campus, so I thought it would be a good way for me to get to know some of my fellow classmates. For those of you who don’t know what dance marathons are, they are semester long fundraising…

    By the end of my first semester Freshman year, I was ready to go back home to Springfield, IL.  My plan was to work at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum, but plans soon changed for the better.  Just before the semester wrapped up, I was accepted to work as a Tour Guide Intern at the Office of Admission.  As I was looking forward to being a tour guide, I was hesitant at the idea of spending the…

    The first couple of weeks back on campus are always a whirlwind.  Moving back to campus, seeing friends, and finding your groove can be difficult and it takes some time to get used to.  Now that we are almost a month into classes, things are starting to settle down. Every school year I make a new goal for myself to try something new around campus. Being from California, I love to be active and try…
