honest advice from honestly nice people
Here I am, and there you are. I am what you will look forward to (hopefully) after your first two years at Baylor University. The following letter will never come to you, but it is filled with things that I wish I had known then that I do know now.
When I left to a foreign country with 13 people I had never met before, I wasn’t sure what would happen. We were all nervous, and most of our first-day exchanges were awkward. Not only that, my first day in London, I was tackled by a purple-haired Scottish woman, and it really only got better from there.
Studying abroad offers numerous experiences and opportunities that can’t be found elsewhere, and through a college, there are even more. Participating in the Baylor in London FIE program the fall of my junior year was one of the best decisions I made in my four years in college.
Día del Oso. You may think it translates to "day of the bear" but the actual translation is "pointless Tuesday off that you look forward to all semester." Dia is one of my favorite days and I love every second of it. There are so many things to love about Dia, but if you're not careful, you could miss out on something really great. Because of that, I'm going to tell you how to do Dia right. Now, you don’t have to follow my advice. But let me tell you now, in my three years at Baylor, I have enjoyed every minute of Dia and I wouldn’t trade those days for anything.
