Countdown to Commencement 2017: Lindsay Michaud


I chose Fisher because the second I stepped on campus it was that community feel, the small school, everyone was super friendly. It’s just really, I just felt like it was
right where I would fit in. And no other school really compared to how I felt when I was on Fisher’s campus, so I knew right away. I’ve always had a niche for caring for other people and I really just am interested in the medical field. So I knew nursing was what I wanted to do, and seeing Fisher’s nursing program, the simulation labs, and everything it had to
offer, the professors. I just knew it would be like a perfect fit. I was a part of Colleges Against Cancer which plans the 12 hour Relay for Life at Fisher. I was the co-president and I’m now the senior advisor. So I have been involved all four years with that club and I love it. A peer mentor for the past three years and part of orientation team. Got to guide my group of freshmen through their first semester of school. Absolutely adore it, love making that connection with the freshman. It’s a great experience. I’m also involved in the fold mentoring
program to the nursing program so I get to mentor and tutor some of the nursing students below me and help them work through the classes. I hope to back to Fisher and get my doctorate in nursing practice so hopefully working a full-time job somewhere in some hospital in Rochester, and working towards becoming a nurse practitioner. Everyone here at Fisher is just so open and accepting to everybody’s different ideas and personalities. And everybody really meshes well. The past four years have been like the best four years of my life. And I just realized and learned so much about myself and met so many new people and done so many amazing things. If I have any advice for future students,
I would say get involved, absolutely, step out of your comfort zone and try new things because college is the time to do that. And Fisher has a really amazing opportunities for you to learn a lot about yourself and meet new people. And I did that through getting involved. So I would say try new things and really step outside of the box.
