You wouldn’t believe how many times I have started a conversation with a fellow Union student only to learn that they are a legacy here too, oftentimes through multiple connections, just like me. And that is something I just love about Union! Garnet blood runs through our veins. And we don’t go here because we rode our relative’s coat tails and couldn’t get in anywhere else; a lot of us got into some pretty outstanding schools but chose Union regardless because we know how much the school gave to our families. It may have taken some of us a little longer than we would have liked to figure it out (*cough* transferring…), but I definitely believe that coming to Union is coming home.
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
