My Future... Olivet Nazarene University

Thursday, June 23, 2016
   After just graduating high school I have been asked countless times "Where are you going to college?", "What are you getting a degree in?" , "Why did you choose the college you are attending?" So, I recently posted on social media where I was attending college but, I wanted to explain a little more in depth here. 

     Choosing a university was a struggle for me. It took a lot of research and prayer to decide where I should go. To be honest Olivet Nazarene University was not even on my radar. For those of you who do not know, I attended a middle college high school for my first three high school years. Since our high school was on a college campus I began taking college classes at the age of thirteen. Our school was big on making plans. Plans on what classes to take, and even plans on where we wanted to attend college. Here was my plan; Attend Point Loma Nazarene University or University of California Los Angeles and major in Art History. At thirteen I though I had it all figured out, but let me tell you I could not have been more wrong. 

     Now I am writing this post more confident than ever with my current plan. Probably because it is not my plan, it is Gods. My mom first mentioned Olivet to me towards the beginning of my senior year. I brushed it off because no way was I going to a random state or to some random school. My mom attended North West Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho, a sister school to Olivet. After speaking with the staff only a few times via phone call and email, something just felt right. Everyone was so friendly, helpful, and nice. I knew I needed to attend Olivet. Here I am, writing this article letting everyone know that the plan has changed! Pretty much a full 180! haha.I will now be attending Olivet Nazarene University and be majoring in Social Work! 

    My new adventure will begin soon with my roommate Avery! I could not be more excited to see what God has in store during this up and coming school year. I am excited to meet new people and be in yet another new place. I will keep everyone updated, thank you for your support! The pictures below are from orientation! " 

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. - Jeremiah 29:11
