First-year student ready to explore abundant opportunities available at Holy Cross

Bountiful Choices
September 5th, 2007 by 

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

That’s one way of summing up life at Holy Cross for first-year students. There are so many academic, co-curricular, athletic, spiritual, social (and more!) opportunities from which to choose, it’s difficult to narrow down the list.

Colleen Curran, from Alpharetta, Ga., near Atlanta, is currently facing those tough choices.

“I plan on getting involved with either Dance Ensemble Theater, Student Programs for Urban Development (SPUD), campus ministry, or the Student Government Association,” she says. “I’ve also been considering starting up my own Irish step dancing club.”

This much is for sure: Curran is an English major because she loves “literature and the workings of the English language,” and she’s considering doubling with either classics or political science. She is also part of the First-Year Program. “I came to Holy Cross because of the strength of the English and classics departments, but also because of the atmosphere and student life on Mount St. James.”

Oh, and also because of a certain building on campus.

“I fell in love with Dinand Library. A beautiful library was one of my requirements when selecting a college — I guess I really am an English major,” she says.

Curran’s first year at Holy Cross will help her decide which other offerings to pursue later in her college career. She’s interested in studying abroad during her junior year and participating in the Washington Semester Abroad program her senior year.

There’s one more thing she’ll be doing during her first year: maintaining a blog. With all the choices she’ll be making, Curran will surely have many stories to tell. And she can’t wait to get started.

“I want my blog to depict what the first year at Holy Cross is truly like. I found last year’s first-year blog to be very influential in helping me choose Holy Cross, and I also hope to reach out to students who, like me, are not from the New England area.”
