11 Of My Best Decisions In College Thus Far
Serena Foote

After finishing my sophomore year in college, I have reflected on how I've grown as a person. There is no doubt that college is tough, but it is also beholds some of my best years so far.

1. Choosing to go college in a different state.

Moving across the country has given me so many amazing opportunities and amazing people.

2. Having an on-campus job that I learned from.

Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center

Working as a banquet server at the Kellogg hotel has taught me so many things.

3. Choosing to live in my sorority house.

A year living with 48 girls gave me memories I'll never forget.

4. Going pretty much ‘blind’ when picking my freshman year roommates!

Always thankful for my freshman year roommate and forever friend- Allexa Nash. Rooming with someone I never met before led to this beautiful friendship.

5. Creating Relationships with Important Mentors/Professors

7. Introducing myself to new people in class.

This is how I met my best friend, Mary Beth. But it was the other way around.

Best friend, roommate, same thing.

10. During my second year, calling my mom more often than not.

Holding the position of Director of Event Operations for COM 490. Choosing to write for the Odyssey and becoming a content creator.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
