First Generation Story

From a small town in Ohio, I did not have any family members who had gone to college, so I began my higher education journey at a branch campus close to home and then transferred to Ohio University's main campus in Athens, Ohio, which was a life changing experience and encouraged me to find creative ways to travel further from home. The CSU English department's kindness and patience in answering all my questions as a prospective new graduate student is how I ended up in Fort Collins.
