Josine Finds her Place at MSU

Picture

My first semester at MSU was pretty challenging because I was trying to make a lot of adjustments to find where I fit, especially socially. It was very challenging for me to make friends at first. Everyone is so busy, and it was hard for me to find someone to talk to. I felt very alone in the first days. To make friends, I began to join various clubs and organizations on campus. I joined MSU’s African Student Association and another club on campus called MRULE, which is a multicultural organization. We meet and talk about race and culture-related issues. To find friends with similar interests and values, I became a member of the MSU Ballroom Dance Club and found a really great church choir to join. Some of my favorite memories of this semester were the Spartans American football games that I attended. I went to two of their biggest games, and I had a lot fun. I also had to adjust to the weather in Michigan, and my worst moment was falling down when it first snowed!
