Student Perspective: Marah's Story
Marah Cheek, a senior and legacy student, reflects on how she has made her Radford story her own.
Both of my parents went to Radford, making me a legacy student. Growing up, my parents would bring me to campus for alumni and sporting events. This is when my love for Radford was instilled in me. When the time came to apply for colleges, there was only one place for me!
The task at the beginning of my freshman year was not to see Radford as my parents’ school, but as my own. Getting involved helped me do just that! Working as a Tour Guide, a Peer Instructor, and with the Quest program helped me to share my love of Radford with others and build relationships professionally and socially. I also became President of Psychology Club and secretary of Psi Chi, an honors fraternity in psychology, just like my mom when she was here. These experiences have helped me become closer with professors in my field of study.
Radford has given me opportunities I didn’t know existed for myself. I have grown socially, personally, and professionally, all while my love for Radford has grown exponentially. I can't wait to be back on campus and see what my senior year has in store for me!
