Op-Ed: The Light at the End of the Tunnel

With three semesters remaining in my undergraduate program, the future is bright, and the opportunities are seemingly endless. After four semesters of hard work, dedication and changes in my major, I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. When I started my first semester at West Texas A&M University, I thought I had my entire future mapped out. I would have never guessed that I would be presented with the endless opportunities that WT has offered me – opportunities that have sculpted my future into something far greater and more beautiful than I could have ever planned for myself at eighteen years old. This campus has taught me things that expand far beyond a textbook in just two years.
