On the first weeks of freshman year...
Reflecting on my first few weeks at Seattle University I feel like I am already changing. College is supposed to be about finding yourself and discovering new things, I just never thought this all started in the first three weeks. My classes are broadening my outlook of the world by questioning the ideas I have held fast for so long. I am already meeting people who challenge and inspire me to work and think harder then I ever have before. Being in the city is so new and interesting. There is so much life and energy around at all times it can be occasionally overwhelming, however the campus provides a quite place away from the hustle and bustle. Overall these first few weeks have been challenging, exciting, and not anything I expected, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings.
