In roughly two weeks (give or take a couple days), you will step foot on Colorado College. Some of you have visited, while some have not. Regardless, that first glimpse of Colorado College will be something magical for this will be your home for the next four years.
This is the place where a ‘unique, intellectual adventure’ is about to take place. You’ll have the opportunity to be a biologist, an historian, or a philosopher for 3.5 weeks. You have the opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas in a classroom with students from across the world. Professors become your friend, and really do care about your well-being and your many existential crises.
This is the place where you get a Block Break after that mind-blowing and exhausting FYE course. You then decide to go camping, visit some friends in Boulder, or stay on campus to catch up on sleep.
This is the place where you will meet incredible friends. You lived on the same hall, went on your NSO trip together, or bonded over your FYE. You sometimes can’t get over how special your fellow classmates are, but more importantly, you can’t get over that they share your passions.
This is where you belong: the most magical institution of higher learning.
I will hopefully see some of you during NSO week!
