Growing up in a rural area, matriculating into a university seemed like a pathway reserved for others. Even after I enrolled in the local community college, the idea of transitioning to the state university was intimidating and distant. At the university, I persisted but never thrived. Years later I realized that I had almost never asked for assistance; engaged in educational, cultural, or other opportunities; or cultivated lasting personal or professional relationships. All of those possibilities existed if only I would have known how to access them and then done so. They are there for you, too.
