Spring Quarter on Campus


After spending two quarters at home, I could not wait to get out of my house and move down to Santa Clara for spring quarter. I was tired of attending my online Zoom classes, staring at my screen all day, having very little social interaction, and watching my hometown friends leave for college. While I was scared to move to a different state towards the end of the school year, I was excited to finally meet other people and get a small glimpse of a college experience. From the moment that I stepped foot on campus, my entire life flipped around. Instead of sitting inside my room all day, I was able to meet new people, attend my one in-person class, and fully immerse myself in the Santa Clara community. I’m going to remember the small things like grabbing dinner from Benson every night with my suite mate or exploring the Bay Area. The fact that I had to wait two quarters to finally have the college experience made it even more exciting and special. Moving onto campus and attending school has brought a sense of normalcy into my life and it reassures me that things are moving in the right direction. While the circumstances were not ideal, I cherish every moment that I have to spend time on campus with my friends and will never take anything for granted. Although these were a short 10 weeks and I don’t want to go home for the summer, I’m looking forward to next year!
