Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?
Moving away from home to attend school has opened me up to a whole community of students just like me. Many of us come from middle-class families who have struggled to send us far away from home in hopes that we will further our education and become mature adults. This is new to us all, and while most are taking it well, there are some who will be transferring at the end of the year to a school closer to home.
Here at CSU Monterey Bay I’ve met a lot of people that I can easily connect with. I’ve made a lot of friends, and I met my boyfriend, Josh, here as well. The community of students here is so great, I know that I will always have someone who understands me and will be here to help me.
For 2011, I would like to get more involved with this community. I would like to join more clubs and attend more events. But, for now, I’m content with what I’m doing.
