We’ve All Been There: Freshman Year

Alena Purpero, Lifestyle Editor

A college town is a condensed population of a wide variety of people. Although we all come from different backgrounds, majors and organizations, we all find ourselves enduring an embarrassing moment or awkward encounter from time to time.

The good news is, the story that once made you cringe is over and done with and is nothing but a good laugh now. After all, embracing your embarrassment builds character, and that is what the Lifestyle section of The Royal Purple is all about.

So share a story with us that, despite your previously rosey cheeks and sweaty palms, is now an amusing narrative that you can look back on and laugh.

“When I was a freshman I made a salad in esker and tripped and dropped my salad on the ground and slipped on the ranch.” -Taylor Russell

“When I was a freshman, I had come home from a day of working at the Royal Purple to find a squirrel had chewed through my window. I went to go elicit assistance from my RA, who just so happened to have a steamy love interest inhabiting his room at the moment.” -Kimberly Wethal, co- Editor in Chief
