As we near the end of the semester, so too ends college football season. Marching band has been my family since moving to Las Vegas in 2015 and this weekend was our last game of the season, so I thought it was fitting to dedicate this post to the folks who have supported me since my first day at UNLV.
I am thankful to have a great community of friends who cheer for me on and off the field. Marching band has been my way of getting involved at UNLV and I am so appreciative for this network of people who keep me going...even when I have two term papers and doctoral applications due in the same week. If there is one thing I can recommend/stress for prospective Master’s students, it would be to know thyself. I encourage you to take the time to reflect on your mission and goals, challenging yourself to go beyond your comfort zone. Moving to a new place not knowing anyone is a challenge. You’re nervous, perhaps excited and anxious to get settled in the community. My advice is to be zen and believe in yourself.
