I've been at SU for three weeks now, and there have already been plenty of unexpected occurrences. I decided to ask some of my friends about the most unexpected parts of their college experiences thus far.
Katie, graphic design major
"Definitely how fast I found a group of friends. I was really nervous, but I found a great group and support system so quickly!"
Krit, film major
"The social scene! There's always something to do."
Ryan, sports management major
"You never know what to expect in the dining hall. Let's just say some days are better than others!"
Morgan, public health major
"I was very shocked to see that people already come into college with groups of friends."
"The workload. I didn't expect to be reading this much!"
Annalise, communication & rhetorical studies major
"Not being able to go to the bathroom without putting shoes on."
Jackson, film major
"How easy it was to adjust, and the enjoyable nature of classes. I feel more engaged and like I'm learning something that matters here."
Reid, public relations/finance dual major
"I was surprised with how easy it was to make friends here!"
And... me! (public relations major)
I did two weeks worth of reading thinking it was one day's worth of work. It was a rough night... at least I'm ahead!
I'm sure there will be plenty of other things that will happen to us over the next four years that nobody saw coming... but here's what's been going on so far! I was surprised by the variety of answers I got from others, yet a lot of them are also very similar. Interesting... here's to what's next!
