Dear Second Semester Senior,
Last Semester Senior Year. Your deposits are in and you are finally in the college of your choice's sweatshirt. This is the time to take it all in, enjoy every second of the last times with the friends you have known and spent every day with for the past four years. The class trips, the Baccalaureate Masses, the senior/ faculty lunches and of course graduation. Make sure to take in these moments but embrace the change that is ahead of you. Change can be hard and scary, but it can also be good. You are headed in the direction of a milestone in your life where you are finally moving onto the next chapter.
Freshman year of college. Another milestone in your life. A new setting, new food, new people, new everything. Its a time of transition and the beginning of something new. Its tricky at the beginning and it is completely normal to feel like you're not perfectly adjusted. You're going to want to go home some weekends and that's okay, but don't limit your experiences by going back every weekend. I promise you're not missing much. All of your friends are away too and moms advice and dads jokes are just a facetime away. Make sure to join clubs and get involved, if you want to rush a sorority, do it! Don't let anyone make you feel inferior or "weird" for different clubs or organizations you want to be involved in, its how you make friends and how you take advantage of all your school has to offer. These four years are all that you make of them, so do everything you can to make them worth while!
