For many people, entering a new university as a freshman can be anxiety-enducing. For Marissa Kelley, it was an experience that she couldn’t wait to be a part of, and she has enjoyed her experience so far.
“I think this university has some great professors. They are all so kind and caring,” she said.
Coming from Louisville to Pikeville was a big change for her, and like most, she didn’t really know what to do with the change. However, she enjoys the small town environment here.
She is a passionate young lady who intends on making as many memories as she can.
Looking toward the future, she looks to graduate and move on to a higher level of education. She is an ambitious and optimistic person who has the potential to do amazing things.
Her time at UPIKE may just be a stepping stone in the great things to come.
“I can’t wait to see what these next few years are going to be like,” she said.
