An ode to my friends
This entry has admittedly, been long awaited for by many people, so here it is:
AN ODE (SHOUTOUT) TO MY FRIENDS
To the guys who first showed me around, and even put it a movie
To the girl who I lose in translation, though still call a good friend
Each an adventure, every day—exciting and new
One thing about Centre's social scene is that it's incredibly varied—you meet friends with whom you share many common interests, but you also meet loads of new people simply through experience and association. Many of my classmates have turned into friends simply through shared experiences, despite the fact that we may have not otherwise interacted.
The beauty of Centre is that you don't have to fit a certain mold to have an extensive social circle. Athletes, Greek brothers and sisters, thespians, chemists, etc. are all open to new people and ideas. It sounds cliché, but seriously, the best way to meet people is to just get involved! I've met so many people through choir, theatre, service projects, and just showing up to other organization's events.
Contrary to stereotype, there are many ways to have a good time in college—like every other college, Centre does have parties, but I've personally never felt forced to attend or partake in anything that I didn't feel inclined to do. Movies, projects, athletic events, and plays are always going on around campus. What's more, if you still can't find anything to do, Lexington is a short drive away. Most of the time, my friends and I make a day of it: go see a movie, grab a bite to eat, shop, ice-skate...whatever! Everyone wants to have a good time, and all will respect whatever social decisions you make. Here at Centre, we work hard and we play hard!
