When I applied to college in the fall of my senior year in high school, I was trying to figure out where I would succeed and where I wanted to fit in. I applied to only three schools because I had no desire to go anywhere but to those three universities. 

As a graduate of DiscoveryBound’s National Leadership Council (see, Christian Science was very important to my identity, and I wanted to continue growing in my relationship with God. So, like many others, I thought that if Christian Science was important to me, I had to attend a school where everyone shared my same faith. However, I decided to attend a big state university. I was in love with the school, and while I was very excited about it, I still felt guilty. Did that mean I wasn’t making Christian Science a priority?

Before stressful days, my roommate and I would talk about Bible quotes.
