One WONDERFUL thing about being a part of the Wildcat Family is having people that are always there for you. Today my post is going to be about all of the members of the Wildcat Family that touched my life today, on a typical Tuesday.
9:25 a.m. Kaitlyn S. caught me walking into class and asked if I would like to sit by her. We talked about an upcoming project as well as what the lecture was going to be about. Kaitlyn set the tone for my day being positive! I always worried about just being another face on campus, but that is certainly NOT the case.
10:55 a.m. Colin H. texted me to let me know that my 11:30 a.m. class was cancelled so that we could meet with our groups to discuss a large upcoming project. He saved me a walk across campus in slightly chilly conditions.
11:45 a.m. Alan H. started organizing our group meeting and attempting to coordinate all of our schedules. Quite a task to take on with busy college students!
1:00 p.m. Katherine S. welcomed my friend Emily L. who sat in on our Sociology class which was especially interesting today.
4:00 p.m. Chrissie C. made plans with me to go exercise. The importance of an exercise buddy to keep me motivated and accountable does not go unnoticed!
5:05 p.m. My uncle, a proud Alum, calls to check in on how life and school are. He and my aunt make frequent trips out to Manhattan and always make a point of meeting up to see me.s supportive does not go unlooked! It always helps to have someone to motivate you and hold you accountable.
6:30 p.m. a fellow K-State student welcomed me into their apartment on late notice because I am trying to figure out housing for next fall and was looking at a specific floor plan.
7:30 p.m. Emily L. took me out for dinner within walking distance from Campus. We ran into a friend that I have known since before I could remember, a fellow Wildcat, that I haven’t managed to see since school started in August. Friends Old and New ROCK!
8:15 p.m. Emily L. and I decided we were unprepared to walk back to campus (it got chilly when the sun went down) but we had things we needed to do. We made a semi-joking comment to friends via social media about wanting a ride home.
8:25 p.m. Cameron K. arrived to take us back to campus so that we didn’t have to walk back. Cameron had seen the comment on his way out to his car to head to the Rec with friends and decided he had enough time to drop us by our Residence Hall.
As you can tell by my day, part of our culture is to take care of one another. We care about one another as if we were family… wait… We Are Family!
Have a great rest of your week Wildcats!
