Kaelyn Campbell is a first-year at DePauw. She is currently involved in the Management Fellows Program. Kaelyn, like many others, is not a native to Florence. Her home is in Colorado, a bit far from Indiana. Here are some of her answers about going to school out of state and in a separate region of the US than where she came from.
Her Campus: What is it like going to school out of state?
KC: At first, going to school out of state was a little strange, not knowing anyone or anything about the state. Going home is now an all-day process, which I’ve never had to deal with before.
HC: What is different to you between Indiana and Colorado?
KC: Indiana is very flat. In Colorado, you can be almost anywhere and be able to see the mountains. Indiana is also a lot more humid, which makes the heat feel twice as hot and the cold even worse.
HC: What is in Colorado that you cannot find in Indiana?
KC: The sunsets in Colorado are much better since it sets behinds the mountains. It’s a lot more picturesque. The restaurants in Colorado are also better; there is more of a variety.
HC: What is in Indiana that you cannot find in Colorado?
KC: A lot of the general people in Indiana are more personable; they are all very nice and give more of a homey feel.
HC: How did you hear about DePauw, especially since it is far from home?
KC: My dad, uncle, and sister went here so I grew up knowing all about DePauw!
HC: Thank you so much for meeting today! It was a pleasure!
KC: Thank you Natalie!
