Wow! I know you are freaking out about going to college and that is okay. But I am here to tell you that everything is going to be okay. You will find amazing friends that share your values and help you through rough times. You will have moments where you struggle with your mental health but your support system is amazing, so use it. Your friends will be such a shining light in your life. Seeing them will never fail to put a smile on your face.
You will find a place on campus that will bring you great friends and great opportunities. You will find this in Greek life at Zeta Tau Alpha. You will be surrounded by women who celebrate your achievements. You will have the opportunity to lead the sorority’s philanthropy and raise money for breast cancer awareness and education. You will also have the amazing opportunity to go to Wisconsin and initiate their new chapter.
You will get to work for DITV and get so much experience in the field of broadcasting. You will get to cover the volleyball team and learn how to write and produce for live shows.
Lastly, you will know that the University of Iowa was the right choice. The campus, the community, and everything in between will affirm your choice every day you are here. Yes, you will still miss your family, friends, and your dog. But life is an adventure, so take this on with all the confidence in the world and you will feel so much happiness, passion, and love here at Iowa (I would know haha.)
