It is almost Admitted Students day! I am looking forward to the event which bloggers have a chance to mingle with accepted class of 2015 students in the Sunken Gardens on Saturday afternoon. It is always a pleasure to share my William & Mary experiences with inquiring prospectives and give them the candid run down on my favorite university.
Not only will I participate in the Day for Admitted Students, but I am also hosting for ESCAPE. This is another Admission Office event where accepted students stay overnight with current William & Mary students. Throughout my four college years, two of my prospectives have attended the college. To keep with tradition, I plan on persuading my prospective this year again!
As my senior year comes to a close, I encourage incoming freshmen to grab college life by the horns and live it up. If you put in the work academically, socially and spiritually, you will be sure to get the most out of William and Mary. As an incoming freshman you should remember the following things:
- If you do not have a roommate, randoms are not always nightmares—I had a random roommate for freshman, sophomore, and senior year and I loved them all.
- Take a course with Professor Vinroot in the Mathematics department; he is awesome and even made Abstract Algebra understandable.
- Take a course with Professor Nezlek and Professor Christine Porter in the psychology department; if possible major in psychology.
- Open your eyes to hidden organizations on campus and try something new—for me it was Synchronized Swimming.
- Remember, the real world will not have the love and security that W&M offers you, so bask in it during your four years.
I know you are probably thinking, “That girl is too old to be telling me what to do as a freshman…” But remember, hindsight is 20/20 and with four years in the game I’m basically the Soulja Boy of W&M.
