I can remember being pulled out of my car. I was anxious, nervous and overwhelmed.
I didn’t know then, but my orientation would be one of my most memorable experiences I had here at Quinnipiac.
A year after my own orientation, I stand surrounding hundreds of new Quinnipiac students, dancing and singing in my Aqua-colored polo. The experience I had at my own orientation inspired me to lead and help the new class feel that same way.
It’s hard to believe that I have accomplished an entire year of college. I have grown and learned so much over the past year. College is a huge transitioning point in a person’s life, and without my orientation leaders there to guide the way, I don’t think I would have had as much success my first year.
I want to share with the new freshman not only what my orientation leaders shared with me, but also what I’ve learned from my experiences as a college student. I could not have asked for a better staff to work alongside this summer.
The orientation team is an incredible group of students, representing all walks of life. So far, the two freshmen groups I have been able to share time with have been absolutely amazing.
I am having the time of my life leading this orientation.
I hope that I can provide for my freshmen what my orientation leaders have provided for me.
