Thanks for the Memories.
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. (:
i got accepted to marquette and offered $12,000/year. too bad i withdrew my application two weeks ago.
i know i made the right choice by withdrawing so someone who really wanted to go there could and i wouldn’t have gone there anyway, but it feels nice to receive another acceptance letter, especially one telling me they would have given me $48,000.
"7 ways to ruin your college reputation"
My freshman advisor posted this article to her Twitter earlier and I thought it was worth the read for all of you!
(article by Emily Grier)
“Arriving at a college where nobody knows you can be the most exciting feeling in the world — but it can also have its consequences. Sure, people may not know that you decorated your locker with unicorns freshman year of high school, but do you really want to give them the impression that you’re usually the one swinging from the ceiling at the frat house? Here are the top 7 surprising (and not-so-surprising) ways to trash your rep before you can say “academic probation.”
1. Gossip Girl
Easier said than done, I know, but gossiping can ruin your reputation faster than a frat boy can chug a beer. Especially as you’re just meeting people, when you immediately start talking about somebody else behind his or her back, it makes your new acquaintances wonder if you’ll gossip about them, too. Although you might feel better in the moment ranting about your crazy roommate to everyone on your floor, you’ll regret it in the long run.
2. The Flake
You know that friend that always wants to go to dinner or finally see that movie downtown, but then about five minutes before you’re supposed to leave texts you to say he or she has to flake. Don’t be that friend. We’ve all been there, and it’s always annoying when it happens. It’s easy to make plans with someone, only to be bogged down moments later in homework, clubs and life. But when you make plans, try to stick to them. If you think there’s a good chance you’ll have to reschedule, warn your friends ahead of time that you’re having a busy week and might have to pass on this outing. Flake one too many times and you’ll be enjoying dinner-for-one in your dorm room for the rest of the year.
3. The 24/7 Partier
Obviously, this is college and, clearly, there are parties. Lots of parties. After working all week on your French project and killing yourself to memorize every muscle in the human body for kinesiology, who wouldn’t want to have a little fun when Friday night rolls around? But consider yourself warned: Go out every night Sunday through Saturday, and you will make a bad name for yourself. I’m not suggesting that you sit in the corner and study every night. However, there is a fine line between having a good time with your friends on the weekend and hitting up ragers on a Tuesday.
4. The Constant Status Updater
“John Doe is at the library studying for finals until the end of time.” “Susie Q is at the cafeteria watching that gorgeous boy next to her eating his ice cream.” I’m sorry, but very few people —excluding your mother and stalkers — want that much up-to-the-minute information about you. When you’re updating your status more than twice a day, you should probably consider restraining yourself. Especially when people may not know you too well, constant Facebook and Twitter updates signal one thing: I need a life. Sure, you might just want to share your favorite song lyrics of the day with people, but to everyone else, it’s the first sign that Suzie Q needs more hobbies.
5. The Photographer
I’m guilty of being that girl — the one with the camera, ready to capture every potential Kodak moment the second it happens. But I’m very well aware that not everyone’s a fan of that. While it may be tempting to capture all of the fun, awkward moments of college, sometimes it really is better just to live in the moment. Try to take the time to enjoy yourself without having to immortalize every minute of it — even if it means passing up the opportunity to blackmail your friends later.
6. The Social Chameleon
“Oh, yeah, I LOVE foreign films.” “You like to hike on the weekends, too?” “OMG, the Yankees are my favorite team ever!” Obviously, everyone wants to fit in. While this may go without saying for some people, for others it’s just a reflex they cannot control. But really, there is no excuse for the complete social chameleon, who is ready to blend opinions to match whomever he or she is with at the time. If you really do love something, then by all means speak up and express your enthusiasm! But if you don’t know that the Yankees play baseball or your idea of hiking means taking the steps at the mall instead of the elevator, then you will do yourself a huge favor by not pretending to be an expert on all things, all the time.
7. The Debbie Downer
We’ve all seen the “Saturday Night Live” skit. And it’s true: Nobody likes a Debbie Downer. Especially within the first few weeks of classes when you’re meeting new people, who wants to pal around with someone who complains about everything under the sun? “My roommate is beyondannoying.” “I’m sick of all of my clothes.” “I think I’d rather starve myself than eat the food in the dining commons.” Complaint after complaint gets annoying to hear. Sure, we all have bad days, but try to keep full-on rants to yourself, or at the very least, to a minimum. With that being said, keep in mind that Debbie Downer’s cousin, Suzy Sunshine, can be equally as irritating to the rest of the world in large doses.”
Last night, my brother tweeted “Late night walk back to campus alone. Feeling a little nostalgic.” and posted this picture:
I can’t WAIT to be back. It’s starting to sink in that we’re only a few weeks away from being (back) on campus! It’s to the point where I’m packing up my clothes, making sure I have the essentials, making some new iTunes playlists and discussing plans for the first night/morning back (walking to the lakefront, grabbing some coffee and watching the sunrise)!
I hope you guys are excited because you really should be. This is a great time. I was driving around with a friend last night and we were talking about how a year from that moment we were discussing college and how nervous we were. We didn’t know what was going to happen, where we would end up, who we would meet. You’re very, very close to your own journey, so get ready ;)
