Sharing is caring!

 

Hi everyone! It’s been a few weeks since I have posted a blog post. I can’t wait to get back to it! I have so much to share with you all. I have been quite busy since my last post, I was finishing up school and I graduated college! Wow it is still crazy to say, and it hasn’t really hit me yet.

As most of you probably know I gradated with a Fashion Merchandising degree with a concentration in Promotion and a minor in Public Relations. What you might not have known is that I graduated from Marist College, a fairly small liberal arts college about an hour and half north of the city in Poughkeepsie, NY. I absolutely loved it here, and looking back I am so happy it was where I ended up. Not only did I get an amazing education, met some of my best friends, and I got to live on a beautiful campus on the Hudson River.

I’m not going to lie, before I moved in freshman year the last place I wanted to be going to college, and living 2.5 hours from my family. Even my first semester was quite rough. I was put into a two-person room with three people, and it was the furthest away/ longest time I was from my family. After the first semester, it definitely got better. I made a bunch of friends (some of who are still my best friends), studied abroad for four months, and made so many amazing memories I will remember forever.

I have grown so much as a person from my college experience. It has made me a more confident and independent person. It’s little things like the fact that before I went to college I wouldn’t even drive on the highway. By the last semester I was doing the 2.5 hour drive home no problem. 

My cap is the middle one!

When people told me freshman year to cherish the next four years because it really flies by, I didn’t really believe them, but let me tell you they were so right. I really think these were the fastest 4 years ever. Even through the ups and downs, I really did love my time at Marist. The thought of not going back in the Fall hasn’t really hit me yet. Even though I would be returning in the Fall, I will always be a Red Fox!
