College is one of the biggest transition times in life. It hits right in the time of life when you’re trying to figure out how adulthood works and who you are as an individual separate from your family and the place you were raised. During some typical reflection time on my life and the first two thirds of college, I realized how unexpected some of the changes in myself were, as well as the things everyone told me would change and didn’t.
The opinions and characteristics that have changed
The opinions and characteristics that have not changed
I didn’t realize how much just two years could form me into a new person. I also took everything anyone said about college as truth, so I had no clue that there were some pretty big parts of myself that wouldn’t change at all. I know that a lot of people say you don’t need to pay for four years of college to get a job, but even without the degree, I think your college years really help you figure out who you are. Classes are only part of the equation. College is such a transformative time for you to get clarity and direction on who you are and where you should be. I doubt that any of these changes would have taken place without Ohio State, and I couldn’t tell you if I would have stayed the same in all the ways I did, either.
