Over the last few days I have been attending International Student Orientation (Monday), Transfer Student Orientation (today), finalizing my class schedule for Collin (taking nine hours there in fall), and trying to register with UNT (taking three hours there). After today, I sighed a huge pile of relief, as all (except registration) has been done.
I am now officially a concurrent student with UNT & Collin, and registered in the Bachelor of Arts program with a major in Sociology. Have you ever had one of those experiences where you just knew it was right because it felt right, and things just “fell” into place? Well this process with UNT – as rushed and disorganized as I have been with it – has just felt right. I'm not sure if it's the school itself, or the way things just are. I guess I'll have to work on the answer for that one.
Today at orientation (no. 2), I participated in the “fight song”, learnt about the claw symbol (with the hand to do during pride events), and listened to a very cute boy sing the alma mater for UNT. The negative? Getting up at 6:30 AM to get ready in time.
