You’ve been counting down the months, weeks and days until it was your turn to be a freshman at Marquette. Well, Class of 2015, you’re mere hours away.
On Wednesday, you’ll be moving into your dorms, saying goodbye to your family and friends and starting a whole new chapter in your life.
In all honesty, I’m a little jealous of you all. I remember how I was feeling right before move-in: excited, nervous, anxious, happy… I didn’t know what to think. If you had told me one year ago what I was about to experience, I would have never believed you.
I’ve had a great time interacting with you and recounting all of my freshman year adventures. Running this blog has given me the opportunity to stop and really take it all in. Your 4+ years at Marquette will go by quickly, so take advantage of each and every moment.
Now that you’re about to start your own journey, I think it’s time for me to say goodbye to the blog as I am no longer “The Freshman,” you are! You can begin to write your own stories and adventures from the year (and don’t have to read mine).
I’ll leave you with this: your life is about to change. That can be good or bad, but it’s up to you to make everything of your college experience that you can. Have fun (but remember you’re still here for academics!). Get ready to make lifelong friends and lasting memories. That is what college is all about – that is what Marquette is all about.
Have a great upcoming year and good luck! I can’t wait to see you around campus because, beginning Wednesday, WE are Marquette. (:
