This is my last post as a sophomore–crazy, I know!
Looking back on the past year, I feel like I have learned so much through experiences in and out of the classroom. I thought I’d take sometime to talk about three of my favorite moments.
Women’s Institute for Leadership and Development was incredible. Working with such amazing women who want to enrich the Wentworth community with their ideas and passion was so great to work with. I believe we made huge strides this year that would not have been possible without the dedication of our members. This summer for three days in June, a few of us are going to the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders at the University of Maryland. I am so excited to go to workshops and seminars where we can network with other women who have similar goals as us. Hopefully, we can take what we learn and bring it back to our community.
2. Alternative Spring Break
I know I already have an entire blog post about this, but I had to reiterate how great of a week I had! Community service is very important to me, so being able to take part in a week long trip helping another community was so rewarding. All of the different things we did were so enlightening and inspiring–I hope to do them again one day! Additionally, I was able to meet so many interesting people and make wonderful friends. Regardless of our busy schedules, we still make time for each other to catch up. The sense of community this trip brought is very, very special to me.
Sophomore year has definitely been one of meeting so many new people. Through classes, clubs, and school trips, I have been able to meet so many great friends. This is truly what makes college as great as it is. Wentworth exposes you to people from all over the state, country, and world. There is always an opportunity to learn from them and to find similarities that bring you together. Being around motivated, hard working individuals makes the academic part that much more enjoyable. Exploring the city with them in our free time is even better! I definitely recommend taking advatange of getting to know as many people as you can. College is the best time to expand your horizons and step out of your comfort zone. If I hadn’t, I never would have met the people I now call friends.
Thank you for keeping up with my sophomore year! I hope to see you all next year. If you ever catch me on campus, feel free to stop me and say hi!
Have a wonderful summer!
