I was looking for a place to play basketball,
I chose Minot State. The relationships I built with the team I still have today, and the
coaches were amazing. I’m Jesse Crosby, I’m a senior at Minot State and I am majoring
in addiction studies. I’ve gained a lot of friends over the years, with Minot State being
a smaller campus, it’s kind of more tight-knit, you’ll get a lot more relationships. With
my major of addiction studies, one of the best things I like about it is you not only
get to have your classroom experience, you also get to participate in mock therapy sessions.
One person will act out the client, and one person will be the therapist, that way we
get more experience. All of my teachers that I have are so willing to help, they want you
to succeed. One person that I’ve become pretty close with over the years is my adviser, Dr.
Michaels. She’s been there for me since the start, she showed me what I can do with my
addiction studies major, there’s so many options. I want to open up a facility that adolescents
will be able to come to. I think it’ll help in the substance abuse area, that will be
a safe place for them to be able to spend time with their friends.
