My First Week at OSU My first week at OSU has involved many new experiences, people, and a plethora of emotions. Among these emotions, the two dominant ones are excitement and nervousness. I was, and still am, very excited to make new friends and finally be apart of classes that interest me and are of value to me. While I miss my family and friends at home, I was very excited to meet many new and diverse people since everyone from my high school was essentially from the same background. Also, classes have already proven to be far more interesting than my high school classes since I was able to pick them out from a very long list. Despite the excitement I have for making new friends and going to interesting classes, I am nervous about what these two situations entail. While I have started to meet new people and possibly friends, I am still nervous that I won’t find someone who will understand me like my best friend at home does. Classes also make me nervous because I am afraid that I will not be prepared for the new level of difficulty that college is rumored to have. My first week at OSU has been pretty chaotic, but in a good way. I am still adjusting to the new routine and the amount of walking that must be done in order to get to class. The first couple of days were very hectic since they were filled with different activities, but it was nice to have so many events to go to and people to meet. Classes have been fairly simple since they mostly pertain to the syllabus and expectations of each class. I expect that my OSU experience will probably calm down once I figure out a routine and fully understand my schedule. I hope that OSU will provide me with many opportunities and I expect that it will since I have already taken advantage of many of those opportunities. I also expect that the Humanities group will provide many new experiences, whether through different activities for points or just through the friendships that I hope to form in my hallway.
