Back on the Hill

Year Three for Me!

Wow. I cannot believe it. I just recently began my junior year at Holy Cross. The time is flying faster than I can even imagine. There is so much to look forward to this year, and I cannot wait to see what it has in store for me.

I began junior year by taking the role of orientation leader yet again. I helped welcome the Class of 2027 to Holy Cross, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to have played a part in their journey. They are an incredibly talented group of students who will thrive at Holy Cross, and it was so rewarding getting to know them!

School quickly began after orientation ended! I adjusted to life back on the hill. I was excited to see my friends that did not go abroad this semester, and I miss the ones that did! I am living with three other roommates this year, and we get along great! It was an adjustment moving to apartment-style living, but we have so much fun cooking together and sitting at the kitchen table every night.  We are a family in our room, and I would not have it any other way! The laughs and memories we have shared in such a short period of time are immeasurable.

As the year began, I reflected on my goals for this year, and all of theme are centered around a common theme: gratitude. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to attend Holy Cross, and it is one that I do not take for granted. Every day I discover something new to appreciate at this college, and I am excited to embarking on new opportunities with an open heart and mind. So, this year is the year of testing the waters, reaching for the stars, and being thankful for every step of the journey that is the Holy Cross college experience.
