What Greenville, North Carolina Is To Me

I see this place as home, and so much more than that.

What Greenville, North Carolina Is To Me

Greenville, North Carolina. Some people see it as just a town in North Carolina. Some people see it as home of East Carolina University. Some people see it as the place where Sup Dogs is. I see this place like home, and so much more than that. Greenville, North Carolina has been a life-changing place for me.

I came to Greenville in August for my freshman year as a student at ECU. I thought that eventually it would all get more familiar and I would start getting used to it, but never did I think I would call it home. Greenville is different than any other college town I have been to and different from any other town in general.

Greenville is a town in the south, which was a little bit of a change for someone from Maryland. Living in the south for the first time was a fantastic experience for me. The hospitality in Greenville is amazing and can be found in every establishment in the town. The personality of Greenville is a story of its own.

I can't quite describe what makes it so special, but there is something for everyone and every time of day. There is almost always something to do in Greenville, and there are a few things that would make you say "just Greenville things".

Above all, Greenville is where I met some of the very best people I have ever met. So many great people have come into my life as a result of being in Greenville. Whether these people are originally from Greenville or not, it is where I met them, so it attracts great people.

After living in the same place for most of my life, going to a new state was different, but I am beyond thankful I moved to Greenville. Greenville now feels more like home to me than Maryland does, and that's not a bad thing!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
