Fall Weekend spans three days and consists of various events intended to showcase students’ work and athletic abilities. It also gives families a chance to reunite after students have been at school for nearly two months. For first-year students, this is a particularly exciting weekend, as Harvest Festival and the Fall Ball both take place on Saturday.
Oh, the excitement. Oh, the nerves. Oh, everything else in between. That is how I felt before coming to Conn. I wondered how living on my own for the first time in my entire life would feel, and I guess a lot of first-years were feeling the same way. As soon as I entered the campus I thought to myself, “Wow… this is actually really beautiful, I cannot wait to live here for the next four years.”
