I’ve always been known as a homebody. Not in the way of being at my physical home all the time but being in my town, with my friends and my family whom I value most in the world. Going away to college was bittersweet for everyone I knew. For me personally, it was full of anxiety. I would watch you tube videos of other kids moving in to see my situation before it would happen, and it would make my heart race and my mind spin.

When I first arrived on campus on move in day, I was eager to finally arrive at campus, but as we got closer It felt like I had butterflies in my stomach, and my heart was racing as If I was sick. I could hear sounds of students laughing as I walked into check in, I couldn’t wait to make new friends. When I was looking at my best friend that came with me it was such a bittersweet moment, knowing I had to let go of home, and all my friends.

As the art director, my job is to create the physical newspaper. With the help of five section editors, two digital editors, an illustrator and an editor-in-chief, we put something out every month that covers topics from campus news to members of the Lasell community. Most of my team members are communication majors. But, once we start talking about concentrations, things get a little different. I am a communication major with a concentration in creative advertising. The majority of my counterparts are journalism and media writing concentrations.
