Welcome back, lovely Dutchmen and women! I hope everyone is as excited as I am to be back at the U for what is bound to be the best term yet! The thing about Union College’s Unique schedule is that because we are on a trimester system (three 10-week terms vs. your “typical” two 15-week semester schedule) our spring term goes unusually late into the year (early June instead of mid-May). While it is sometimes weird/difficult to still be in school while all of your friends are done, I (and most other Union-goers) wouldn’t have it any other way. Union springs are magical — even the administration knows it! That’s why this year Union is encouraging all those bitten by the Union Spring bug to tweet/Instagram/pin about it using the hashtag #SpringatU. What are U going to add to the conversation?!
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!
