I started my Springfield College career in the fall of 2007. Being from sunny Southern California, I could only imagine what New England would be like. I found my place at Springfield College through New Student Orientation (NSO). I loved so many things about NSO, such as how a good majority of our time was spent getting to know other people in our group. It felt great knowing that I knew people prior to the first day of school. Through NSO, I was able to learn so many great things about Springfield College. I also loved how the entire weekend was set up like summer camp.
Because of my experience and help from my NSO leader, I applied to be an NSO leader for my sophomore, junior, and senior years. I enjoyed having the opportunity to show new students Springfield College and everything great about it.
Since graduating from Springfield College, I moved back to Southern California and currently am working in real estate. I am also on the board for the San Diego-based Alumni Association for Springfield College.
