by Sherry November 26, 2012

A couple years ago, I had my mind made up about how some things were going to be in college before I even started. Well, surprise surprise, many of my assumptions were wrong. But, they were wrong in a good way! I’m not going to lie, I was a little grossed out about the idea [...]

Surprises of College Life

by Kelia November 5, 2012

I feel like college is full of surprises and I never really knew what to expect. I visited twice, I even had an overnight stay. But you never really “get it” until you live in a residents hall freshman year. What really surprised me was the absolute community feel of our floor. I was not [...]
