Today’s August 22nd, the first day of my sophomore year, and I can’t believe it’s already here. This summer I studied abroad in Peru for a month with OU’s new Journey to Latin America program. I can safely say this was the best experience of my college career, granted I’ve only been here for one year! After I returned, I was a counselor at Camp Crimson, OU’s orientation camp for incoming freshmen and transfer students. A high energy weekend full of teaching OU traditions, boat races and pool parties, leadership development activities, and new friends, Camp was a great way to cap off my summer.

Campus is strange today. Strange because there are around 4,000 new faces walking down the South Oval. This year’s freshman class is the largest ever in OU history. There’s an energy and excitement present here that is not easily explained — only experienced. There are so many things that I look forward to this year, including…

...OU Football! (The home opener is September 3rd against Tulsa)

...Opportunities for Campus Involvement and Community Service!

...And the chance to (hopefully) plan trips and studies in places as invigorating and vibrant as this

...and this

...and this. (I'm kind of proud of these pictures I took in Peru)

It’s going to be a great year!
