My First Quarter- Ayman Mahmoud
Diversity is the first thing that comes to mind. But more importantly, it’s a platform where Muslims get to represent themselves, which isn’t always the case in some media sources. Also, inclusivity across cultures/beliefs is huge, I think. In the end, we’re all one kind – humankind.
My First Quarter- Heather Garrison
I liked being able to come into such a close-knit program and community. Everyone was very like-minded. Everyone here is so passionate about chiropractic. It was a big shift coming, going from being at home in North Carolina versus being here where you’re surrounded by so many like-minded, passionate people.
My 1st Quarter – Danielle Albright
Be open. Make sure you’re diverse. We do have an [unspoken] rule where if you see somebody on campus to say, “Hi,” to get used to talking to people you don’t know. Enjoy it; have fun. That’s all it is really about—having fun and making connections and to do what you have to do in the classroom. And if you are in a sport, do what you have to do in the sport and in the classroom as well.
My 1st Quarter – Shani Tyson
Everything was new. I’m originally from California, so coming all the way to Georgia, I was able to see a lot more green than before in my hometown. Just getting familiar with the area, it was pretty adventurous just to get to explore everything in Marietta and what Life U had to offer.
My 1st Quarter – Citlali Salas-Abrego
I am currently in my second quarter at Life U. In my first quarter, I would have to say attending the different activities that [Life U] offers made it memorable. I went to the Philosophy Night with a teammate of mine. It allowed me to see different things about Chiropractic that I hadn’t really thought about before.
My 1st Quarter – Tunahan Olcay
I’m a transfer student from Turkey. I studied for three years over there. When I started [at Life U] about three years ago, I found all my professors very helpful. For a transfer student, that is important because you are coming to a totally new environment, meeting with new people.
My 1st Quarter: Menika Brady
What we are meant to do is always going to be so much bigger than us, so stay focused on that bigger picture. It’s less about myself and more about how I can serve others. When we do that, the benefits that come from that far outweigh anything else. There’s a different kind of joy to be experienced by putting yourself in that place of Lasting Purpose.
My 1st Quarter: Tatum Johnson
Take every opportunity you can. Join the clubs you never thought you liked. One time I sat in on the Nutrition Club with one of my teammates and even though I am not in any dietetics classes, I thought it was so fun. So, make sure to try every opportunity even if you don’t think it’s what you wanted. Just try it, it’s going to be okay.
My 1st Quarter: Haley Turpin
Trust yourself. You know your passion. You are being guided by something bigger than you that is leading you down the perfect route for you to thrive, to be supported and to be loved. Once you begin to feel those things, you’re able to give those back to your community.
