Three Things I Wish I Knew As a Freshman
College can be a pretty overwhelming place. Coming from a high school with a total of 500 students, it was quite the change in atmosphere when I entered DePaul my freshman year. I was used to seeing friends of mine all throughout the day and knowing everyone in my grade level. I’ll never forget the first involvement fair I attended. I remember all the poster boards, flyers, people, and more. It was chaos for me because there were so many different things to see and there seemed to be no way to navigate it all. It wasn’t until this year (my second) that I started getting the hang of things. I joined DAB (DePaul Activities Board), CCM (Catholic Campus Ministry), DCC (Digital Cinema Collaborative), MOC (Men of Color), did intramural soccer, and participated in several retreats and conferences.
