Whether you’re prospective students, friends, family, or just random strangers, I’d just like to thank you guys for visiting my blog! Hopefully by documenting my first year here on the Hill, you’ll get to see what’s its like to be a Holy Cross student, well at least THIS Holy Cross student!
So, it’s been a while, but I’ll try to start from the beginning. I decided to go to Holy Cross because of the size, its Jesuit affiliation, its exciting New England location (I’m proudly from Missouri, but I thought I’d switch it up), the strength of its academics, the school spirit, the friendliness of the people, the community feeling, and, at the risk of sounding superficial, the BEAUTIFUL campus!
So far, the reasons I came are the same reasons that I’ve been having such a great time here. My classes are great, the football team is almost undefeated, and the campus in Fall is absolutely gorgeous… I took a postcard from the admissions office and hung it up on my bulletin board to remind me during the upcoming winter months. Move-in day and Orientation Weekend now seem like an exciting blur. Even though the lectures were packed with information, my Orientation leaders have really made my transition as simple as… pie? Alright, well it’s still college. And there is A LOT of homework (especially now that it’s already time for midterms!) But luckily I love my roommate, and the support of my orientation leaders, teachers, and new Hanselman friends have made my college experience so far a positive one.
So much for now, but I’ll keep you posted!
