So the weather around here has been pretty unpredictable lately. Some days I’ve woken up with the mindset that its spring and the pools should all be open, whereas other days its freezing and I’m dreading that walk to classes from the bus. Sure enough, spring is coming soon and I cannot wait to be back outside every day enjoying the weather.
Other than that, I have been pretty busy in my classes and organizations. In my fraternity, I signed up to become a big this semester, which means that I get to act as a mentor to one of the pledges (people joining). It’s a great opportunity to help out the pledges and make the pledge process more enjoyable.
I have also been sending out a ton of applications since my last post. First, I applied to become a Peer Mentor with the College of Business for the fall 2012 semester. This position requires me to attend all the freshman events and guide them to the adjustments of college life. I have always been really interested in applying and am hoping to get the position. I also just sent out a few applications for scholarships, which are a great way to minimize your college debt. I would advise anyone who needs financial help to apply for scholarships. There are so many different types of scholarships for all different talents and interests. Lastly, I have finally sent out applications for internships this summer. I have applied to a few places in Boston, DC, and North Carolina. I’m just as nervous to hear back as I was when I was applying for colleges a few years back, but I’m hoping for the best!
