Three things you wish you knew prior to starting college:

  • Maintaining friendships back home takes a lot of effort and by putting that effort in before I left to come to college has significantly helped me stay close with my friends even though we see each other every few months.
  • Learning the phrase, “Hi, my name is ___________.” College is just like kindergarten all over again. Everyone is nervous and feeling the same way, say HI! We all like making friends.
  • College has a lot of free time built into it, but it is YOUR responsibility to take advantage of it. You’re here for the college experience, Work Hard and Play Hard OA Style!!

Why did you join the guide program?

I joined the guide program because of the people who were in it. I love the culture and friendships that are made through OA. Our program goes to some incredible places, though our trips are amazing because of the people who are there sharing the experience with you.

Weirdest food you have created and/or ate:

Caviar and Frogs Legs
