major from Azle High School
memory from freshman year: Playing a daily scavenger hunt
game trying to find an “R” parking spot.
point of freshman year: The first dead week and finals.
I knew basically what to expect, but it was extremely nerve wracking.
surprising thing about freshman year: How many new friends
I made so quickly.
thing about living in the residence hall: During finals,
not everyone had the same definition of studying or using the assigned
quiet hours as my roommate and I did.
thing about having a roommate: Hmm ... so many things to
choose from — midnight laughing fits, new inside jokes, a
true best friend, an automatic sister to an only child.
most about home: It’s between having a “suggested
curfew” or waking up on the weekends and smelling the biscuits
and gravy my mother cooked for me.
professor: Dr. [Ron] Marcello for his drive to entertain
us (the class) rather than bore us to death. He made the second
part of American History so interesting.
class: Human Sexuality.
advice about getting through freshman year and from whom:
I had so many people supporting me and advising me, but my mentor
from high school, Jack Walsh, and my mom and dad always told me
they know I can do anything I put my mind to, and I did.
important lesson learned freshman year: I can’t study
the way I was always taught in high school. I had to actually read
ahead and devote more hours to one class.
spot on campus: The football stadium — I’m
a huge college football girl.
favorite spot on campus: Probably walking through areas
that are covered with trees, which in turn are packed with birds
that get their target practice in.
thing to do on campus: Go support the Mean Green football
band: I don’t really have one, but it ranges from
Sinatra to ... let’s just say some kind of rap.
book: The Bachelor by Carly Phillips.
meal in the cafeteria: Chicken strips, mashed potatoes
and gravy. What can I say? I’m a true Southern girl —
I love my fried food.
way to take a break from studying: At 1 a.m., Ashlee (my
roommate) and I would go to Wally World and throw balls back and
forth and ride around on carts.
forward to most for sophomore year: Not being a freshman
and using all of my gathered “knowledge” from this past
year in my studies and my social life.
