Where were we? Oh, That’s right! Hope you all had a good Christmas break because we are jumping back in where we left off in our freshman year flashback. So welcome to second semester…. You’ve only been back for a week and look how many memories you’ve already made!!
It all begins with sorority recruitment!! You spend three days meeting and chatting with so many incredible women and eventually end up in a forever home and sisterhood!
Then you have new classes, new professors and are opened up to meeting so many more people.
You spend time with these people in classes, the library and at all the sports games that are finishing out their season or just starting up!
Then comes your first college spring break! Students have the chance to take a trip back home or to go somewhere with your friends for the first time! I had the chance to go on my spring break with some of my best friends and make some amazing memories.
Now typically, we return back to campus and finish out the year with more classes, finals, Greek Life functions, fusab events and end of year traditions. But as I’m sure you are all aware, the world had different plans for this school year. But don’t worry, there is a silver lining!!
We students have come together and bonded in a way that is incredible considering the fact that we are all social distancing. Weekly zoom calls for classes, professors constantly checking in to make sure we are okay, group FaceTimes, pinpals, virtual tours for prospective students, zoom game nights and so many other ways that Furman keeps its community together no matter what.
So yes, this semester ends a little differently than any of us would’ve expected, but it honestly has proved to me the impact that Furman has had on me and just how much I love being on the campus. So if ya ever want to have a zoom game night, I’m your girl- Rosemary Cruse
