In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"St. John Fisher College. These four words are an easy way to describe where I have spent the majority of the last 12 years of my life.
My courtship with Fisher first began when I was a junior in high school. I had friends who attended this college and after only one visit, I was hooked. This place seemed so warm and welcoming. An added bonus: Fisher was small enough that I didn’t feel overwhelmed, yet large enough that I could experience some diversity. Having gone to a smaller high school, these were two very important things to consider when choosing a school. I loved it here. When it came time to apply for college, Fisher was the first one on my list. Lucky for me, I was accepted and began my undergraduate work in the fall of 2002."
