To The Freshman At Union University

Dear Freshman class of 2020,

First of all I would love to welcome you to Union. I love this place and have made memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. If I could go give you any advice, it would be to get involved. Join Greek like, run for student council, join whatever club you want. It may not feel like it, but the next four years will fly by. I'm sure everyone is teling you that, but trust me it is so true.

I hope that you will come to call this place your second home, as you decorate your dorm room and find your place here. For those who live out in Pollard and the other dorms that are far from civilization, I used to live in Pollard so I understand how far of a walk it is to do anything. Especially if you have to walk to Jennings or White Hall. But at least you get good exercise.

By now you have probably figured out that the dining hall has good days and bad days. You guys are lucky in that you get to see The Lex the way it is now. Let's just say it needed a major face lift and has greatly improved since my freshman year.

Please don't be one of those people that walks around with no shoes on inside buildings. Have some class and come to class with shoes on.

Above all else, enjoy your time here. Be loud and crazy (unless it's quiet hours) and make as many memories as you can. Go to the different games on campus, we have a really fun student section and we love cheering on the Bulldogs. You can say with pride that you go to Union. I hope that God does an awesome work in you, this school year and in the years to come.

I hope to see you around campus. Have a great year.

From a senior not ready to leave this place.
