Walking onto the campus on the day I moved into my dorm was probably the most terrifying day of my life.
I felt like a little kid all over again; clinging to my parents’ sides, refusing to let them out of my sight. But as the day went on, it got easier and easier to meet new people. Everyone was extremely friendly and I met a lot of people that I am still friends with today. And then finally, I came to the realization that I was at college.
When classes started the campus was buzzing with excitement. The many different clubs and organizations played a great part in stirring that excitement. In order to recruit freshmen and transfer student, there was the annual club fair. The event came complete with a bounce house, live music and plenty of other entertainment.
Sports games were thrilling; dressing up and rooting the boxers to a victory meant a good night ahead. There was never a dull moment with something to do always lurking around campus. Even if you weren’t in the club that was hosting the latest event, they invited you with welcoming arms. Being able to walk down the hallways of dorms and see the open doors, always led to fun with your new friends.
Pacific is a place to feel safe. At the end of my first year, I did not even remember that scared girl that walked onto campus on her first day. My advice would be to not worry. This is new to almost everyone. The main goal is to have fun and never regret anything.
