That Profound Statement

From P. Carson Lantis, Class of 1960

As incoming freshman during the fall of 1956 a fellow from eastern Ohio and I became Calvin Ulrey dorm friends.  After several months of adjusting to Manchester College campus social living he told me, “Carson, you don't have to do things the other fellows do just to be accepted.  You can make your own decision and still be respected.” We don't know what influences we have on others at the time.  But that profound statement has helped me make choices throughout my whole life.
