“Knowing that I can actually do this and not get overwhelmed”
Joey explains that his SOAR group and the lacrosse team helped him transition smoothly into life in Missouri: “Some people are afraid of college, I feel like, but I’ve made a lot of friends so far.”
The friends didn’t ease all the nerves about the first day of classes. “I felt so overwhelmed, but now I feel way better about my classes. That is probably one of the more memorable things: knowing that after the first couple of weeks that I can actually do this and not get overwhelmed by everything. I started to feel more comfortable,” he said.
“I sit in my room sometimes and think, ‘What do I do?’”
Joey was in for one surprise when it came to his new life as a Bear — free time. “The down time was definitely a shock,” said Joey. “I sit in my room sometimes and think, ‘What do I do?’ I get done with classes at one o’clock.”
He admits some of that extra time gets spent on homework. “It also surprised me how much I have to work in my classes. I go to every class, but it’s still a lot of outside work. I can’t skate by,” he said.
