Carissa Rae Fry (2014)
One of the most rewarding experiences I've had at Miami is mentoring at-risk youth from the Talawanda School District (Oxford's district). I've learned so much from the kids and they've instilled in me a new vivacity for life. I like to think that I've served as motivation or inspiration for them to pursue goals that they feel are too 'far out' to achieve.

Instead of telling students what they need to take and do in order to get a degree, Western asks students to provide the answer ... I'm in the process of creating my own major, which will combine physics and philosophy in an effort to examine how we as humans measure, define, and try to make sense of this crazy world in which we live.

When I came to Miami, I wasn't sure what I was going to do ... After going down a long path, I landed in Individualized Studies. It was one of the best choices I ever made.
