I'm so eager and excited to go back to school this coming semester. College for me has been one of the best learning experience I have ever had. The things I have learned and the memories and friends I have made will follow me everywhere I go. Slippery Rock has so many clubs, organizations, and activities to pick from. I'm never bored! I would absolutely pick my school again if I could do it all over.
