I believe that this immersion has made me a more
open-minded, accepting person. Many of the
experiences allowed me to experiment with new,
unfamiliar activities and allowed me to step
out of my comfort zone. -Suneal Vishnupad

  • I have found that I am more open to different
    religious beliefs. Since we were able to visit
    the Hindu Temple, Temple Beth-Abraham, the
    Islamic Center, and the Unitarian Church, I feel
    like I have a greater appreciation for other
    peoples beliefs.

House of Bread!
21
  • All of the places of worship that we experienced
    as a group made me think a little differently
    about the world around me. One of my favorite
    things about the whole Stepping Out immersion was
    that I was constantly doing things that I had
    never experienced or even thought of trying
    before. Things like flying, To-Shin Do, House of
    Bread, and the places of worship were experiences
    that were completely unique to my life.
  • -Bob Dyer

22
  • The experience that really changed the way I
    look at the world was the House of Bread. This
    was my first time volunteering at a place serving
    the poor. The word poor in this experience
    really took on a new meaning. I used to think
    that the poor were all just people who made bad
    choices and didnt try to fix them, but through
    this experience I found that they all had their
    story to tell.

  • The experiences I have had during immersion,
    especially Hocking Hills, have altered the way
    that I think about myself. Mainly in that I seem
    to have found my niche in the MVS community where
    it is not required that I conform to anything,
    and because of that I feel that I act as if I
    truly am me, instead of putting up a fa├žade in
    order to fit in.

  • I found out that the world has such great things
    for me and I cant just sit there and think they
    are going to come to me I have to go out and
    tackle them and make the best out of my life. I
    feel very differently about my classmates. I
    didnt know most of them very well and to learn
    about their lives and what they can accomplish
    and do was just amazing to me.

  • I became better friends with people in my cabin
    and I guess I dont really feel like the new kid
    as much anymore. Thats a good feeling.

  • Before we went on the hikes, I was not exited at
    all. I did not like the outdoors, and I had no
    appreciation for natures beauty. However, when
    we were hiking, everything was so beautiful, and
    I took many amazing pictures. Hiking caused me
    to see the world around me in a different way (as
    beautiful). I was surprised that I could go from
    someone who hated hiking to someone who truly
    enjoys it.

  • I feel differently about my character. The
    reason I do is that I found traits within that I
    didnt know I had before this experience. I
    realized that there was a very calm side to me.
    Hocking Hills helped me feel very confident that
    I can deal with what life throws at me.

  • My favorite thing about immersion this year was
    the trip to the zoo. Ive never been to the zoo
    in my life. I had a blast. I felt like a four
    year old again looking at the animals It felt
    like being on the animal planet channel or
    something getting to pet snakes and stuff.

  • Also at Hocking Hills I realized how I can be
    when it came to cooking and people doing their
    dishes and putting their stuff away. Since Ive
    been home I am trying really hard to put my
    dishes in the dishwasher and not leave my stuff
    lying around because I get how irritating that
    is.
