HIGHLIGHTS FROM HER FIRST YEAR “Honestly I was a bit nervous coming to Holy Cross freshman year. Throughout high school I had always been quiet and shy. However, I decided to put my best foot forward and allow Holy Cross to bring out the real me. Now that freshman year is over I can say it has been the best experience of my life — not to mention the most fun. Holy Cross has exceeded my expectations in every way possible. Here are a few highlights of my freshman year: made a ton of new friends; Spring Weekend; Battle of the Bands; and declared my major.”
ACTIVITIES Greeter in Admissions, prospective student day host; “tweeted” for Admissions; Student Marketing and Communications Advisory Group; Student Programs for Urban Development; prebusiness program; internship with alumnus Ted Pidcock ’88 at Teddy the Dog Apparel.
WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “I have a strong connection to Holy Cross, and I want to share my experiences with prospective students to show them what Holy Cross really has to offer.”
