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.
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!
