So in an attempt to give you a better feel for what it’s like to be a Northeastern student, I’m going to give you a glimpse into my life for an entire week. Not that I think I’m overly cool or anything (but if you think so, I won’t argue it), but I thought it may help you better picture your life here at Northeastern.
So let’s begin, shall we?
We’ll start with Sunday. Today is one of my favorite days of the whole semester- and that is Husky Ambassador training. Although it’s a long day full of lots of talking and energy and spreading of ideas, it’s incredibly rewarding. At a lot of schools, being a tour guide is a paid position. Yet at Northeastern, we’re all student volunteers, and all are apart of HA because we truly feel so passionate about the school and Northeastern’s mission. I’ve known I wanted to be a tour guide at Northeastern since I went on my first tour during my junior year of high school. I had such a positive experience, and obviously fell in love with the school, so I wanted to directly impact other students the way my tour guide impacted me. So Anthony (oops, I remembered his name all the way from 2009), if you’re out there - you rule.
Being in Husky Development Committee is such a great honor because I get to help shape the future HAs, which is so cool. Whether we’re listening to keynote speakers, teaching the tour route, answering tough questions for candy, or casually chatting over pizza, it’s a great way to get to know my peers and serve as a mentor. This is my second semester as a Husky Development Mentor and I love every second of it.
Obviously I could talk about HA and my crazystupidawesome obsession with it all day, but….lucky for you, I won’t. But it’s how I spent 8 hours of my day today (which totally flew by).
Since that took up most of my Sunday, now I get to deal with the really thrilling stuff:
- Laundry laundry laundry
- Cleaning my apartment
- Contemplating going grocery shopping but getting Chinese food delivered instead
- Binge watching all the Scandal I’ve missed this season
- Lots of stuff for Homecoming
More on Homecoming tomorrow, as that’s when our meetings are held. In the meantime, hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into this absolutely gorgeous fall Sunday that I got to spend with some awesome fellow Huskies.
Until next time!
