Blue is "Belonging." I like to join things, and I want people to feel like they belong here. It's important and easy to find your "thing" here.Drew
Blue is "Growth." I'm not the same person I was my senior year in high school. I won't be the same person my senior year or in seven years when I’m a teacher. Watching myself grow as a person, as a student, and as a teacher, I realize it all comes back to my education and the friends I’ve made here.Sabrina
Blue is "Pride." It’s not only having pride in our university, but also pride in yourself. You can do whatever you want when you put your mind to it. This is your school, your home - you just want the best for your university and your peers.Kayli
Blue is "Future." If you want to get your future going, all the resources are here and completely possible. We have the Career Fair to help you with internships, and the Career Center can help you make connections with future employers. It’s up to you.Ben
Blue is “Community.” There are always so many things happening on campus. Students don't have to be a part of an organization to meet people or get involved on campus, which is great for transferring students that don't know many people.Ashley
