This week has started exam week and like many others I am starting to feel some pressure and wondering how I will get through a couple exams. These are hard weeks especially for those who are freshmen, but these are the times to embrace and truly take a look around at all we have in front of us (besides scantrons and exams). At Purdue we are beyond blessed with the opportunities, encouragement, and community that we are surrounded by. Be sure as this fall flies by to take ahold of some of those great opportunities like university activities, career fairs, intramural sports, and football games. Also check in with any of us to get involved with crops judging, soil judging, agronomy club, and other activities the department has to offer its students. These blessings we have only skim the surface as we develop new relationships with friends, reconnect with family, and find more out about ourselves. Take these special years at Purdue to get to know the campus, the people around you, and take advantage of the opportunities that surround you everyday.
