Peer to Peer – Spotlight on Personal Growth >

Zoe SchillingWhat is one unique experience you’ve had at ONU that has helped you grow?

In high school, I was a straight-A student. I graduated with a 4.3 GPA and was at the top of my class. I entered college with the mindset that it wouldn’t be ‘that hard’ and that A’s are the only acceptable letter to have on my transcript. Well, reality hit me hard. I cried. I was so stressed all the time. College is much more of a challenge than high school. My pharmacy class was made of students from all over who ALSO were top of their class. I received my first B in General Chemistry and almost had a mental breakdown. This experience actually helped change me for the better. Grades do not determine your self-worth. Learning the knowledge that is applicable to your future profession is what matters. I no longer study to memorize and receive the A on my report card, but rather I study because I enjoy learning the material that will prepare me for a successful future.” - Zoe Schilling, pharmacy major
