I’ve got friends

25 Jul

If you all read Kaitlyn Ruszkowski’s post about diversity… she has it right!

Hiram is jam-packed with diversity :)

 

I knew I wanted to learn about other cultures and perspectives in college…

but I had no idea that some of my closest college friends would be from ALL OVER THE WORLD!!!

My friend Bristena, who I ran cross country with, is from Romania!

I skyped my friend Ken Jon, who is from Malaysia, the other day at 11pm. (He was waking up 12 hours ahead of me at 11am.)

Even getting to know local friends who grew up in different environments is cool!!

My friend Anh grew up in Cleveland and speaks…. well I don’t know how many different dialects of Chinese…but she speaks a bunch of Chinese.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, my friends Brendan and Natalie grew up in farm country here in Ohio.

 

I love the hodgepodge of friends I’ve made at Hiram.

Wierd. Silly. Genius. Business-minded. Chill. High maintenence. Foreign. Black. White. Brown. Tall. Short.  City. Country.

They’re all pretty entertaining to have as friends and acquaintences :)

 

REMEMBER TO MINGLE WHEN YOU GET HERE AND STAY OPEN-MINDED TO ALL THE COOL PEOPLE, FROSHIES!
