It is hard to believe that the summer is pretty much over, although summer didn’t really feel the same for me this year. It is definitely a new vibe around OC as we welcome the new freshman class, as Cascade students join us on our campus, and as the student center looks nothing like it did last year.
It is like a new place, but I am looking forward to the new school year and all the fun it will bring.
Working EYW (Earn Your Wings, duh) always reminds me of my first few days on campus as a freshman. Everything felt so new and so full of promise, and even though my expectations were high, OC definitely did not disappoint me. There is both good and bad, and while I tend to gripe more than I should, I genuinely love being a student here.
I really hope all the freshman can have a positive experience like I did, but it is up to all of us to write our own story. That is what I am trying to focus on this year: celebrating the fact that everyone is unique! It just makes life that much more interesting.
