Hey there my name is Taahir Muhammad…Waddup Olivet?! I’m here to show you what happens at Olivet and why I made it a home away from home. I am an out of state student from New Jersey who transferred to Olivet in fall of 2015 for boxing and to major in environmental science. I am Involved in the OC college boxing team, a graduate of President leadership institute, a brother in Alpha Xi Omega, a resident advisor on campus, a mentor on campus and one of the best amateur boxers in Michigan. By becoming more involved on campus I’ve met wonderful students apart of other Greek societies on campus, students who are out of state like me and even students who are from out of the country, students who are new and finding themselves like I once was, and just a wonderful variety of happy athletic, creative people.
I find that participating in activities on campus ensures that I am making the most of my time here, which allows me to stand out at Olivet and be the student leader I need to be. Being involved on and off campus leads you towards making those long-lasting friendships and creating a community of your own. Olivet college campus is small which allows you to be more involved than being on a large campus and allowing you to personally shape the campus. Plus you can definitely wake up later as oppose to being at a larger school, we student athletes definitely need are sleep!
I am an upbeat, positive person who would rather lead by example. I make myself approachable even when I’m temporarily isolating myself to prepare for fights and train for the upcoming Olympics. When I’m not in class you can find me at the Elite fraternity house, playing chess, in the gym, running 7 miles across campus, and at on campus student social events. I enjoy volunteering if I have the time, and almost always I am aiding students with almost anything. I am stoked to join the OC Stories team and start sharing my experiences with all of you!
