Hello! My name is Nicole Larson and in 28 days, I will become an alumni Brother of the Mu Rho chapter at Colorado State University.
I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. It feels like only yesterday that I was walking through the doors of Rockwell for the first time. Whether you are an undeclared freshman, or a junior who switched their major for the third time (like me!), finally finding your place on campus is a special thing. And as a graduating senior, I have some advice for you:
1. Never say “Maybe next time”
College is full of amazing adventures that will make for some of your best memories! And even though it might not seem like it now, time flies by and before you know it you’ll wish you had more “next times”.
2. Push yourself outside your comfort zone
Some of my best decisions have been made because I forced myself to try something new and unknown. Going to a spring recruitment event for DSP was one of those times. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into, and now I wouldn’t have changed it for the world!
3. Everything happens for a reason
As a freshman, I never would’ve guessed that I would end up where I am now. What I thought was my plan couldn’t be further from the reality that I live in today. Yet I am so grateful for the good, the bad, and the journey along the way.
This advice holds true for all students. But if you’re reading this blog because you want to know more about Delta Sigma Pi, I’ll leave you with this - just do it. Go to the recruitment events. Talk to Brothers. Get involved. My memories in DSP are the best part of my college experience and if this letter convinces you to give it a shot, then my legacy will live on through you.
