On Sunday, Aug. 29th I moved back to campus to begin my sophomore year. I was looking forward to new classes, roommates and opportunities. Ready to take on the year with more freedom than the last.
Moving required me to pack up my whole life into a little car, say goodbye to my family and hometown friends and drive three and a half hours back to school.
I felt excited yet nervous, playing loud music to tune out the anxiety.
I reminded myself the first day always seems daunting, but it fosters an opportunity to start fresh and welcome new experiences into your life. This photo essay documents my move-in day.
Now that everyone on campus moved in and the first couple days of classes are behind us, I feel hopeful for a year of new social opportunities and academic engagement.
