What they say is true
The first five
weeks at Centre have taken me through many different ups and downs. It’s been
hard being away from my family, friends, and the beach. The great thing about
Centre though, is that all of the faculty, staff, and community are extremely
supportive. What the college books say about Centre is true: everybody at the
school is here to help the students.
Being away from San Diego is getting easier now that I’m starting to see Centre
as my second home. I feel at home when I have weekly rituals. In San Diego,
Sunday was always sailing day, Monday was TV night, Thursday nights we'd sail
again, and Friday was going out to dinner night. What has made me feel at home
at Centre is that I've begun to develop new rituals:
is early breakfast at Chowan and laundry day,
Wednesday, and Friday mornings are breakfast at Chowan before 8 a.m. classes,
Wednesday is “Easy-Mac Wednesday” (microwaving a single serving portion of macaroni & cheese before chem lab),
- I catch up on the latest episode of Glee and eat at the Grille on Friday,
every Thursday and Saturday mornings I study while having a chocolate
chocolate-chip muffin and a Diet Coke at the Hub Coffee House.
It’s still hard to be away from San Diego, but to start calling Centre “home”
makes life here great.
