Fifth and sixth floor of the library, or if it's nice out I like to sit on the grass outside of commons.
This year I was able to meet a lot of new people and make friends, as well as joining a club. It's nice to be around people who also value their academics.
I love Dr. Carpenter and Dr. Cui. Dr. Carpenter teaches chemistry and Dr. Cui teaches physics. Both were classes I knew I would struggle with, but they truly valued their students and wanted us to succeed.
Recently, in fencing, I scored my first touch! As a complete beginner, I was very proud and people were congratulating me and also giving me advice on how to be better. It really made me feel like I belonged.
