Purchase has transformed my sense of awareness of the world. Purchase is home to a unique set of people who are always questioning the things that occur in the world. These people have taught me how important it is to not accept everything you see or hear but to question it.
Through my participation in campus-wide events such as Culture Shock and Fall Fest, I have experienced things that I normally wouldn’t have. This has furthered my notion of seeing the world as every-changing. These events aren’t the only things that have challenged my perceptions; the overall atmosphere that Purchase creates has also had a big impact. It’s an attitude of “see me, love me” which translates to community members with greater self-confidence and self-awareness. Purchase is a place for meditative self-actualization.
