What does BLUE mean to you?

Every day at noon as I’m walking to class I hear the alma mater echo across the campus and I smile. More than anything else, ISU has given me plenty of opportunities to succeed. I began my time here in 2008, and it’s been quite a journey since then. I’ve marched with the Marching Sycamores. I’ve performed with the University Symphony. I’ve won awards and scholarships for my writing, and I’ve been published in ISU’s literary journal Allusions. After years of looking, I finally found my niche in the Indiana Statesman and the Creative Writing Society. It’s been an experience and I would absolutely do it all again.
