Blue Tiger Pride

This first semester here at Lincoln University has been one of many learning opportunities and a quest to find myself. I already see a change from my high school years versus this first semester. The main difference is my involvement on campus. Earlier in the semester i ran fro freshman class council treasurer and i won. even though i had no opposition i still posted flyers and attempted to get my name out there. Then i applied for and internship with my schools campus activity board (CAB). Being in this program i got to be behind the scenes on what happens when putting all the school events together, man is that stressful. I also got a job in the school’s library. I am a part of my schools spirit squad and well as the student support services program at my school. With this program we do many workshops that can help us with our college transition and just recently we went on a hayride in the woods. this year has not been just a academic learning venture.
I have met a lot of incredible people here. I have friends from Colorado, Chicago, and even people from California. I attend and HBCU so i am around people who look like me and who want to do something with their lives. at times it seems that this school is a big high school, but i enjoy the small classes and one on one interactions i get with my teachers. There were some bad seeds that i mistakenly made friends and i am beginning to weed them out. I learned that perception is everything and the people that i hang out with can have a negative affect because of the way they act. I almost missed out on a wonderful opportunity because of this.
As i approach my finals i am very excited to see what is in store and i hope for the best. i am most looking forward to returning home because i really do miss my family, and this school is in a city where if you want good food or want to go to a good mall youneed a car or a cab. So i can not wait to be able to walk to Target or something.
I wish everyone luck on their finals, and i will need all the luck i can get as well.
