As we enter the week of Thanksgiving, Fresh@News asked members of the Class of 2013 to reflect on the following question: What Are You Thankful For? Here are a few responses that we would like to share with you. We hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving and time with your student as a family.
I am thankful for…
I am thankful for my friends, both old and new. I was worried coming to college that I would lose some of my best friends from high school and would struggle to make new friends. But I am so grateful for the help I get from my new friends here at school and the constant contact that I still have with old friends back home. You cannot do this alone, that is why you have friends.
I'm thankful for being served watermelon, blueberries, and strawberries everyday here, even though they're out of season...its great!
I am thankful for my health and the health of my family members.
I am thankful for having reached a goal I've had for 7 years - attending college.
I am thankful for my mother - without her I wouldn't be the person I am today - she is my rock.
I am thankful for the close group of friends I have here at Villanova.
Having a great first semester and meeting tons of great people
Villanova giving me the opportunity to meet some of the most intelligent and influential people in my life.
Having been able to come to Villanova and being the opportunity to succeed in the future.
The resources available to freshmen at Villanova, such as learning communities and tutoring, to better help us adjust to college life.
Friends at home, friends here, and the opportunities provided at Villanova.
High quality of life and for the chance to learn at a school with such a great academic reputation.
The support of my family through all the tough times.
Being able to have the opportunity to attend such an amazing university, and for having a supportive family that encourages my endeavors.
Happy Thanksgiving from Fresh@News!
