Being at Walsh is like a ripple effect. You are interested in one activity on campus and then it leads to another club, and another position, and as the ripples go out, doors open. If you ask one question, people are there with an answer. People will go above and beyond what you are looking for. I have encountered many ripple effects while at Walsh, but one of the biggest ones was becoming a Resident Assistant. As I met people within Student Affairs through Residence Life, I applied for a summer job with Student Affairs and found a whole new world of education that I did not know existed.
