Family Weekend // I was really excited about my family coming down to see me for a weekend! We took a small tour when my parents first dropped me off in August, but having been down here for a few months, I was able to show off a few awesome little places around campus, as well as a few shortcuts. Topping off the weekend was getting to go to my first college football game! The excitement at the game was palpable and it was an overall amazing experience.

Spending Time With Friends // Many people often let themselves get caught up in the Hollywood portrayals of college, but in reality (at least for me!), finding time to take a break from hitting the books and spending some quality time with friends can be quite difficult. I have been very fortunate in making some pretty amazing friends so far, and there has never been a dull moment!

Bonding With My Pledge Brothers and Actives // I have really been enjoying my pledging process with my fraternity! It definitely is not easy, but part of the process is learning not only how to improve time management but find your own balance between schoolwork, events, sleep, and fun. Getting to know so many like-minded yet unique individuals has been such a blessing and I cannot wait until the day I can officially call them all my brothers.

|In celebration of helping break a Guiness World Record for packing food bags, a few active brothers helped me and one of my pledge brothers cool off from the insane heat!|

Little Things To Smile About // Life is a story composed of highs and lows, big moments and little moments. When we become busy and so completely absorbed in what needs to be done, we often forget about all of the nice little things that can bring so much happiness in an instant.
|I not only finally got a copy, but an autographed copy!|
|I haven't been off-campus very often, but I finally found a great local sushi place!|
Halloween Time // I love how October always ends on such a happy note! Halloween is such a fun time of year, from seeing little kids running around with bags of candy heavier than they are to the crazy and creative costumes that people come up with. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays for the people-watching - it never gets old! What is the funniest costume you have seen?
