In a past blog, I talked about journalism and that brings me to what I talked about and did all day yesterday. I want to major in college in journalism or psychology. Also, athletics have been a huge part of my college searching. I think people who are going to college solely for academics, think athletics makes the process easier but I think it actually complicates it. Obviously I’m going to college for academics but the athletics part can make or break a school for you. I have to think about which division, the overall team aura, and team dynamic(hard training). Fortunately, I’ve narrowed down my preferences. I would rather run division 1 but am open to division 3 and want to be toward the front but not the best on the team. So, yesterday I filled out more college forms. I’m looking at Barnard(running for Columbia), Notre Dame, Wellesley, Wake Forest, Haverford, and Lehigh(only because I have two sisters running there). As you can see, these colleges are very different, size and location wise. I remember my 3rd oldest sister at Brown hating the college process but I actually really enjoy it. I’m so excited to take my running to the next level and hope to contribute and be a big part of my college team.
