    God definitely placed me here at Bluffton. It has been the most amazing experience for me. I have grown so much not only in my relationship with him, but just as a person in general. Since I've only spent one semester here, I can not wait to see all the amazing experiences I have in front of me!

    There is so much to do on campus. Every Friday, there is something going on in the Commons, which is the dining hall. There is Bingo, Karaoke, bands, and so much more. There are also many clubs on campus, something for everyone. I am a member of the Improv group and BASIC, which is for learning more about God.

    I really like it here. After 11 days of being here, I already feel like I can call nearly all of the girls on my floor my best friends. If you are willing to introduce yourself and go to other girls' rooms on your floor and just pop in and hangout with them you will make friends easily. It's also a good idea to become friends with your RA. I love my RA and I know she has gone through lots of training to do her job and I trust her. I live in Ropp, which is an all girls hall, and it is a lot of fun. Since it is across the creek and we are farthest from classes (it's only about a 5-10 minute walk, because campus is all in one place), we form our own little tight knit community. I am totally fine with the policy of having to live on campus all four years, because it's easy to get a campus job and make friends and go to class this way! I will also say that the food is good and even though they only have one dining hall, there are enough options to change up what you eat throughout the week. They have really good chicken salad subs on T and R, and a salad bar, pizza, and cereal every day. Another place on campus you can eat is Bob's place, and they have awesome chocolate milkshakes and wraps. I was only homesick for the first couple days, and now I feel very at home. If you do live out of state, it's OK because a lot of students do, and you will begin to feel at home here as well.

    I have made so many new friends here at Bluffton. Bluffton is based on community. At first I took this for granted, until I visited another school and absolutely no one said hi or acknowledged that I was there. At Bluffton, everyone is friendly and everyone says hi whether they know you are not.

    As a transfer student from another four-year private university, I am greatly enjoying the unique educational experience Bluffton has to offer. The strong community on campus makes Bluffton not only a school, but a home.
