In My First Semester of College I...
  • Took 16.5 worth of classes and got all A’s and B’s for a cumulative GPA of 3.7
  • Played on my college’s NCAA Division III women’s tennis team as a starting player and organized the team’s senior day ceremony
  • Managed not one, but two work study jobs, one of which landed me in charge of running the college’s social media accounts (an ongoing project)
  • Became my class’s treasurer
  • Was a model for my college’s fall recruitment campaign, which got me my own billboard on a main highway and a video interview on the school’s website (x)
  • Fit in a boyfriend, a normal social life, and even time to go out to parties (a little partying does not and will not make you a degenerate or bad person, I promise)

Moral of the story?


Challenge yourself. Push yourself. You have NO IDEA how much you can be.

saw this on tumblr and it made me giggle.

i love my college.

1. There are two theories as to why Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage named the college after her departed husband.  The first theory is that Russell Sage was a suffragist and staunch supporter of women’s rights, and she named the college in his honor.  The second theory is that old Russell and Margaret had a miserable, loveless marriage, that Russell was a famous philanderer and misogynist who believed that a woman’s place was in the home, so Margaret named the (women’s) college after him out of spite.  It is said that every time a woman graduates, Mr. Sage turns in his grave.

2. There is a statue of a minuteman in the courtyard of Sage Hall and Bush Memorial.  Sage lore states that whenever a virgin graduates from RSC, the minuteman fires his gun.
