Where Exceptional Begins

Feels Like Home


Posted on June 10th, by Justin Lepley in Value. Comments Off

Growing up just outside of Alliance, it seems like I’ve always wanted to come to Mount Union. I remember back in sixth grade I started asking for Mount gear for Christmas because that’s where I was going after high school. It has always just seemed like the next step for me and now that I’m here, it really couldn’t feel more like home.

I heard a lot of people talk about how I would miss out on campus life as a commuter student, or how I would never feel as connected. In my experience, this hasn’t been true at all. I feel a deeper connection with Mount Union because it is really a major part of the community. Even when I’m off campus it is easy to see how the University is involved, either as a sponsor or partner, in much of what takes place. When I tell people I’m a student there is an instant connection, even if they didn’t attend themselves. They have undoubtedly had an experience with the school or know someone who has. When I’m on campus, I feel just like every other student participating in clubs and other campus events.

While it is hard to believe that I’m already here, one thing I know is that I definitely made the right choice in attending Mount Union.
