Ever since I stepped foot on Oglethorpe’s campus back in high school, I knew I would belong here someday. And when the time finally came for me to become a student here, I dove right into all Oglethorpe had to offer me: new friends, classes, a sorority, and clubs.

One of the new clubs I joined was OU Dancers. I had little dance experience, but they welcomed me onto the team anyway. After weeks of learning new jumps, turns, and people’s names, it was time to perform at the school’s homecoming basketball game. I was so nervous!

But when I stepped onto the court, I found it surprisingly easy to get into the zone. And when we hit the highlight of our routine and the crowd roared, I couldn’t help but smile.

I knew I had made the right choice by choosing Oglethorpe. I belong here.
