Two weeks ago, we asked you guys to share your move in day memories, as we were welcoming the class of 2022 on to campus. Now, classes are in full swing, and we’re back to share some of these memorable freshman year experiences.
1. When I first moved into my room on Trinity Campus freshman year, I was really nervous to meet my new roommates.
I had been chatting with them on Facebook for a few days but none of us had met in person. I walked into the room and saw a girl standing there unpacking some items. Of course, this must be Jenne! She had long curly blonde hair exactly like her profile picture. I awkwardly and excitedly introduced myself. She turns around and smiles back. She then informs me that her name is Mikayla and she was actually Jenne’s younger sister! I turned as red as a tomato and ran back out of the room. Fast forward 4 years later and we are all great friends who laugh about the first awkward encounter.
2. I moved into the shoeboxes after my roommate had already moved in for trek.
When I first met her she was very out of it and didn’t say much.. During our first floor dinner at Cook – she set off the fire alarm and I noticed she was too intoxicated to realize she caused it. She dropped out of school two days later.
3. The way I met my suite mate on move-in day was by walking in on her going to the bathroom in our shared bathroom… quite the first impression.
4. I had way harder of a time adjusting first semester of college than I ever thought I would.
After a couple nights my father and sister drove back home, but my mom stayed longer than planned with me. I was afraid to stay in my dorm which was a forced triple in Millis 3, so I slept in the hotel with her. I ended up moving out of the triple after five weeks.
5. I’m from Buffalo and my roommate was from Boston, so as you can imagine her parent’s thick Boston accents were a bit challenging for my parents to understand.
My mom and her dad spent literally five minutes going back and forth trying to figure out whether or not the other was saying “bear” or “beer”. My mom would point to my roommate’s Bruins poster yelling, “don’t poke the WHAT?” and her dad would go “the bear!” while making claws like a bear until we were all laughing!
Well, those are fun.
I love a good story about a good Boston accent- makes me feel like i’m home <3
See you guys next week!
