From the second I stepped on campus I instantly was able to imagine what my life would be like here. Being 17 hours away from home I truly needed to find my home away from home. Most of the people from my city all go to school in New England and I wanted to get away and have new experiences.
My college experience would not have been the same without getting involved. From Greek Life to being an orientation leader to participating in intramural sports I have made memories that will last forever. Being an influence on campus and helping students find what they love is my favorite. This year I will be a Pi Chi which is a recruitment counselor for the women going through sorority recruitment and I couldn’t be more excited. I am so grateful Coastal has given me the outlet to help others.
