Holy Cross Hockey

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my efolio. My name is Michael Harding, I am currently a senior at Holy Cross College, and I will be graduating in December of 2013. After leaving Holy Cross I will have obtained a Liberal Arts degree in Studio Art.

The purpose of my efolio is to provide visuals of my experiences and achievements that have occurred throughout my time at Holy Cross College. I have put together a theme, "Where the Magic Begins", to allow you to better understand my experiences, and how different situations in my time at Holy Cross have changed me as an individual.

I am originally from Avon, IN, which is a growing town on the west side of Indianapolis.  I was raised by a very loving and supportive family. My family has helped influence me and shape me into the person I have become today, and I am thankful to always have them by my side. Before Holy Cross, I attended Avon High School. This was a very large school and it did not allow me to get the attention that I truly needed.  The classes were beneficial, and the teachers were great, but the number of students was just too much for me.  It was easy to get lost in the overwhelming amount of students. I have been playing ice hockey since I was three years old. Fortunately one weekend during my senior season I was playing in South Bend and I stumbled upon Holy Cross College. The first time I stepped onto the campus a student noticed me and my parents right away and took us in like family. Holy Cross was a small school where I could get the attention I was longing for, and they even had a hockey team. For me, it was that particular Sunday afternoon experience that allowed the magic to begin at Holy Cross College.

Please feel free to use the tabs on the side, to access my dreams and my experiences through my four years at Holy Cross.

I would like to extend an invitation for anyone who wishes to attend my final capstone presentation, it will be held on Wednesday, December 4 at 2:30 p.m. in the Pfeil Center Boardroom on the campus of Holy Cross.
