Whaddup fellow heels! I’m Kylie, your run of the mill, freshman plebeian. I’m from just outside of Pittsburgh, Penn. I am maybe (?!?!?!?) majoring in journalism and am simultaneously adjusting to both #SoCollege life and #SouthernCulture.
I’m basically the quintessential freshman: I live on the 10th floor of HoJo, I met my roommate via Facebook online dating, I’m somewhat scared to use the bus system (I walk almost everywhere), and I wear my complimentary Carolina Dining Services T-shirt to bed almost every night.
During my first month here at UNC I have battled bigoted campus preachers, bore shoddy shower water pressure, been sufficiently intimidated by muscle men at the SRC and muddled my way through awkward small talk with my peers in a 500-person lecture in Carroll.
It’s been four weeks since move in, so I feel obliged to share my Unique & Totally Original Freshman Perspective (UTOFP) with y'all (am I using that right????).
I answered these questions Online Managing Editor Kelsey Weekman gave me, and I'll be revisiting them at the end of the year to see how my UTOFP has changed.
