Senior Memoir: Looking Back

4/6/2017

I remember walking onto campus during a View Weekend --- a time where high school students can experience Master’s life --- thinking, “I don’t belong here. I won’t fit in.” I was almost 20 years old, and I figured I had my life put together. But really I was tearing at the seams. It was at the department chair meet-and-greet that I realized there was something special about this place.

SACRAMENTO, CA --- How am I going to pay off the last four years of my education? Many of us have been faced with this question, trying to figure out ways to creatively fund a hard-earned degree: special scholarships, a full-time job, multiple part-time jobs or, unfortunately, a debt-bomb that will hit as soon as one steps off the stage at graduation. Thankfully, the Cal Grant, a financial endowment given to California residents attending school in state, has been one of the more accessible means of easing that financial burden, especially for nearly 200 students at The Master’s University. . . this could no longer be the case. . .

The most many of us know about dinosaurs is what we have learned from Jurassic Park, the main lesson being don’t try to bring the extinct back into existence. However for Dr. Matthew McLain, a recent addition to our faculty, the existence of dinosaurs is his profession.
