"When I came into college as a freshman last year I was very nervous and scared. I did not know what to expect and I thought everything would be difficult. Now that I am a sophomore I can say that my experience at the University of Idaho has been great. There is no other school that can compare to U of I. I feel that everything that is a part of this campus is amazing from the student organizations to the football games. I never thought I would really come to college but now that I am here I will enjoy it as much as possible. I know that classes seem to be a bit more of a challenge but that just means I have to work harder to get the best out of it. This year seems to be so much better than my freshman year simply because now I am able to take more of those classes towards my major. One of my classes is Textiles, and I think the class is really interesting because we are learning about how different fabrics are made, what types and why some are more expensive then others. I think it is one of my favorite classes this semester. But even though this semester is going good, I am ready for spring semester and for new classes."
"As this semester comes to an end I have experienced many things. Living on my own has been an experience that I never notice. Last year as a freshman I lived in the Wallace Dorms and I thought I was on my own and living life. Now that am living in an apartment, things are so much different. I have learned to conserve energy as much as possible because now I realize what a cost it is to pay for electricity. I have also learned how to be more responsible about organizing my time from school and still being responsible with my apartment. I need to keep in mind to clean, cook and do my own chores to the side of still having to do homework, projects and studying for tests. All of this has been a great experience for me because this is only preparing me for my future. This has all been a challenge at one point but no matter what happens I know that I have enough responsibility to do whatever it is I want."
