Personal Narrative: My First Year At Smith College

Good Essays
My first year at Smith College was a whirlwind; I was elected as the freshman class president, rowed in the first boat on the novice crew team, and maneuvered the social and academic changes every freshman undergoes. I learned a lot about myself, such as what environment I succeed in. Most importantly, I learned that although I can excel, I do not thrive in an environment that highlights intense academic rigor. Rather, I envision myself thriving academically and socially advancing at a university that encompasses academics, social life, athletics, and has a large and diverse student body that resides both on and off campus.
I attended a very small high school, and I thought I would find comfort in attending a small liberal arts college.
