Dear freshman


As I am sitting here writing this it is hard to imagine that I am a senior. I have been given the honor to work as The Slate’s editor-in-chief for the 2014-2015 school year, something I am very proud of.

We are always told that college will go by in the blink of an eye.

I remember move in day like it was yesterday. My family loaded a ridiculous amount of stuff I really did not need into our car and we headed up to Shippensburg.

My poor father carried box after box up five flights of stairs of the old McLean building and slowly but surely I unpacked everything into my tiny room.

Then I blinked and somehow it is now my senior year. With this in mind I would like to dedicate my first message as editor-in-chief to the freshman class. I hope more than anything that your time here at Shippensburg University will be the best four years of your life.

I know that it has been for me. I have learned more here in such a short amount of time that I know I will use and cherish for the rest of my life.

I encourage you all to get involved and to make as many friends as you can. Whether they be your roommate or that kid who sits behind you in class, it does not matter.

This is an opportunity to show what you are made of. Have fun, study hard and enjoy every second.
