Well of course everyone is going to have a tough time fitting in and figuring things out in a new environment. When I first came to Converse, I was extremely shocked that was everyone was so nice to be honest. My thoughts were that there was going to be a lot of stuck up “preppy” girls. But it’s so diverse here and everybody and I mean everybody is nice! I love the atmosphere here:) Some challenges I overcame are of course adapting to a new schedule, new environment and new everything pretty much. You’ll get the hang of it after awhile. It’s all worth it! Myself being a commuter, it’s even harder because I don’t get to see all of the things that other do while staying on campus. That’s why I try my best to stay on campus as much as I can with a friend or something. I suggest to definitely try your best to do lots while on campus and practice, practice, practice!!! Be sure to experience a lot while you’re here and make lots of friends! Don’t be so shy, I know I’m not but I can be. I hope you will love Converse just as much as I do! It’s a great school and there’s no need to fit into a clique or anything like that as if you were in high school because I just love the fact that we can all be sisters here:) Enjoy Converse!
