      Hi folks! 

      This is Margo, a fellow transfer student. I came to Edgewood in 2020 (pre-pandemic and that was a wild ride) and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I started off as an Art Therapy major, but with the guidance of professors and staff I realized what I truly want to do with my life! I’ll graduate this year with a 2-D Studio Arts and Psychology degree to carry me into helping the community and its needs through neighborhood centers (working with kiddos because they are way cooler than adults).

      All this to say: I am confident I made the right choice for me in transferring to Edgewood and I am sure you will feel the same! I know that changing colleges mid-degree can come with some interesting challeng. I also know that the community at Edgewood will help you through them all. The students are so welcoming and I have never felt more supported by professors and staff before. They are all wonderful people and genuinely want to see you flourish. If you ever feel stuck or need someone to reach out to, I am here for you and so is the rest of Edgewood, as cheesy as that sounds. 

      I’m looking forward to seeing all your lovely new faces this fall! Don’t be afraid to say ‘hi’! 

      Have a fantastic first semester, 

      Margo Skolaski
