So, I am SO not a blogger. I've never blogged before. I'm not an avid reader of blogs. I couldn't even name a blog if you asked me.
However, I know what it is like to go through this college process. I know what it is like to have too many questions about college and not enough college visits to get them all answered. Hopefully I can provide a link between eating in your high school cafeteria and actually being on a college campus. Hopefully I can help to make this daunting process seem a little more reasonable and answer any and all of your questions that have never been answered before.
As a tour guide I have gotten all types of questions from "do you feel like there is a lot of diversity on campus?" to "what the heck is that giant pole sticking out of the ground?" However, the number one question that I have received is "what do students at Carnegie Mellon do for fun?" and oddly enough, that question has mostly come from parents. Yet, no matter what I say to these inquiring campus visitors, they always seem to walk away with a sense of skepticism which makes me feel as if my thoughtful answers must seem disingenuous. So, I have created a foolproof plan. Each week I will update my blog, letting everyone know about all the fun and exciting things that I have done over the weekend. Not only will this quell the fears of social prospective students, but parents (mine included) will also see that Carnegie Mellon has a diverse range of fun events for students.
Be on the lookout for weekly posts (or even semiweekly if I am feeling ambitious)! Also, if you were wondering what the answers to above questions are, please see the links below:
till I write again,
