the first couple of weeks you can expect to be a whirlwind. you’ll have orientation and then straight into classes and homework and college. it took me a couple weeks to find my footing and I changed so much every single day. I still do. it can seem overwhelming, but know that every single person on campus is either currently going through that or did at some point. don’t be afraid to ask for help.
this campus is so incredibly wonderful and easy to navigate. if you don’t know where something is, chances are a person near you does.
almost every one of the standard jobs on campus are available for freshman, but you can find out about specific job opportunities and openings at the career center. be warned though, the longer you wait to find a job, the harder it will be.
possibly. there are a couple of people (including myself) that do get paid to be student bloggers. I was offered the job at the end of my senior year of high school with the summer being a trial period. If you’re interested you should contact Aundra Weissert (aweissert2(at)washcoll.edu) as she’s our boss.
I like to hold the opinion that I’d blog about this school whether or not I was paid, and it holds true even on my other blog and every single conversation I have with anyone who doesn’t go here ever.
super excited to see you in the fall! feel free to reach out with anymore questions. :)
