HAPPY SWEETEST DAY!!! These last few weeks have been a bit hectic from classes, to work, to rugby to life in general. It has truly been too long since the last time we have spoke. Well let me catch you up on my life. My classes have been pretty demanding but what can you expect when success is what you want in your future. I have successfully destroyed every exam that has dared to challenge me so far this year with the help of my study guides and long study hours. The semester is about half way over and i couldn’t be happier with where i am academically. Today i plan on studying for a few hours for my exams that i have next week, but before that i plan on relaxing with my friends before the chaos begins again.
As for work, the hours have been nice, and the tour groups have been wonderful. The ongoing training that I have been undergoing has been so beneficial for me that I can honestly say that i feel like a WMU expert when it comes to the university. Never in my wildest dreams would i have thought that i would know as much as I do about the university. Today i had the best group in a while, they had multiple questions that really test the information that i was being trained on. I had a wide range of major interests and lucky for me i had multiple guides working with me that currently studied in the fields. So lunch was very informational and personal for each guest in my opinion and the fact that the guests left with a smile and information that meant something to them specifically put the icing on the cake.
Rugby! Rugby has been wonderful my team has been very successful we are currently 4-1 and going into our 6th game tomorrow morning against GVSU. Since the last time we spoke a lot of things have happen in the world of Rugby i am now one of the new captain for my team. Its a leadership roll that i am more than pleased to excel in. Well until next time my fellow readers, until next time.

My name is Delia and I am Junior here at Western Michigan University. I am originally from a little town called Livonia which is on the east side of the state. I went to Mercy High School in Farmington Hills which was an all-girl Catholic prep school. I graduated in the spring of 2010 and set out for college. I played Varsity Basketball and also ran Varsity Track during my high school years. My transition from middle school to high school was an adventure in and of itself simply because my middle school was co-ed and public but then again it is all about switching things up.
Western was the last college that I visited and as I walked around the campus on my tour, I fell in love with it. My guide was entertaining and clearly in love with the university. The tour was somewhat personal. My interests were taken into account. I wasn’t just a number. The people on the campus were very friendly and willing to help if they could. The atmosphere of the campus was like no other I had seen. It was small but at the same time gave me a large University feel. Everything was within reach. Whatever I needed I could get on campus with the expectation of no more than a 15 min walk. Once I took my tour I knew it was where I wanted to be.
Going into my third year at a University I now call home, I have become involved with more than I could ever imagine. I currently play woman’s rugby which is a club sport on campus. It is not too much of a commitment with practice being only three days a week (2hrs in length) and games being on the weekends. It definitely helps me keep the freshman 15 off. I also participate in the Intramural sports such as Flag football and basketball.
Well just to keep this short and sweet, I’ll leave on a positive note, just one of the simple theories/quotes I try to remember and live by: “You were created to love and be loved. You were meant to live life in relationships with other people, and to know and be known”. Until next time…
