Hello everyone! My name is Bailey Rapp, and I am new to the Student Blogger team! I am currently a Junior studying Digital Media and Video at Liberty University. I am originally from Seaside Oregon, which is where my dad is currently stationed as a helicopter pilot in the Coast Guard. My family has lived in many places across the United States including Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and Massachusetts. Moving was tough, especially leaving Oregon because it is where all of my family lives and, to me, it is one of the most beautiful states in the U.S. Through moving across the country, I have become more adaptable to new experiences and it has also sparked my interest in traveling and exploring outside of the United States!
Over the past two years that I have attended Liberty University, I have always enjoyed hiking with friends. Through hiking, I’m able to not only explore God’s creation, but I am able to capture it through photography as well. Photography is a big part of my life because it is my platform to display God’s amazing design! Along with photography, basketball is another way that I have connected with new friends across campus. It allows me to take a break from schoolwork and the stress that comes with a college course load. Lastly, I enjoy going to most of the events on campus (you won’t be able to attend every single one!) because it brings more community, learning, and friendships by putting yourself out there. I used to be more introverted when I first arrived on campus, but that changed quickly. I am really glad I am more outgoing now since I have been able to host photography meetups around campus and connect with other great artists who share similar interests.
I am excited to share what Liberty University has taught me and how it can be beneficial to you as well! This college is more than a school, it is a community of people who care about each other. When I’m on campus, I always feel motivated because the professors go out of their way to be available to their students. I hope my perspective on my experiences at LU will encourage you to see Liberty in a whole new lens!
