Junior, Major: Education, area: Elementary Education. Fredericksburg, Virginia.
My community is very small and closely connected. When going to a big university it can be hard trying to find people that are trustworthy, yet you are able to have a good time and connect with. Luckily I have found a small group that has created a home away from home for me.
Coming to the University of Oregon was a big culture shock for me. Because of me not being a super outgoing person and at times I can be very shy, I found it hard to connect with and find a community. After going to more campus events and not being so shy I was able to meet a great group of people.
