Kirsten – EDGE (Part 5)

EDGECollege is easier than high school. Said no college student ever.

College proposed new challenges. It is extremely social and academically challenging. When I was in high school I had a lot of friends who were scared about being able to make it in college. They were right to fear a little. New things are scary. But with the right support college can be a breeze.

It seems like my freshman year has flew by. I have been busy. Between school, work, friends and events within the Res’ College, I never knew the days were going by until they were gone. It is hard to balance all of these things for sure. But I don’t regret any of it. I was able to manage all of my busy life because I had people all around helping guide me.

I hate to be that cliché person who is overly school-spirited, but it is hard not to be at UCA. It inspires something within me that I didn’t know was there. I am proud to say I am a UCA Bear but, more than that, I am proud to say that I am a member of EDGE Residential College. It has given me a look into my future and allowed me to find the support it takes to get there.

EDGE has taught me about the world and all of its prospects. I have come to love the diversity that once frightened me. I cannot wait to travel around the world and learn more. EDGE has inspired me to not fear change and foreign things.

I know this isn’t as funny as my other blog posts. This is my last one and I thought I needed to be serious and really tell you what I have wanted to get across. Residential Colleges are the way to start of college right. I hope I have helped you think about your future in college. I hope I have inspired you to come to UCA and EDGE, if that is what fits your needs. If you do come to EDGE you will see me here next year. I loved it so much I decided to stay.
