Anonymous said: Did you ever find your love at UCSC?

I did not, but I did realize my love for someone while at UCSC thanks to friends who saw it and I just… didn’t. (We’re still together too)

Anonymous said: How was it during your freshman year? Any advice for incoming freshies?

My story:
My freshman year was 30-70. I didn’t really get along with my roommate and I only made one friend in my entire dorm (whom eventually changed colleges. 8 to Porter). My roommate also ended up moving out and I had a super-single for 2 quarters to myself.

During Winter Quarter I got involved with student organizations which introduced me to student organizing, other organizations and friends (many of which I’m still friends with long after graduating).

The first organization I joined helped me come out of my “first year shell” as many upper classman were surprised I was only a first year (wise beyond my years maybe? haha). I also ended up joining 2 other orgs.

My advice:
Find something that makes you happy. I enjoyed student organization in high school so finding an org that matched my interests pretty much kept me in SC. If you can find that something I think you’ll be set. Visit as many tables as possible during OPERS.

At a UC where students spend the most (I believe) in student fees… use your campus resources! Tutoring, counseling, campus lounges, etc.

Also… If you THINK you want to do the Naked Run, I recommend doing this your first year because less people know you.
