Reflecting on his past week of parties and in-person welcome events, freshman Billy Parsons reported that his college experience really flew by.
“When I left for college, everyone told me to soak it all in while I could,” Parsons said, reminiscing on his first Ratty visit that happened a mere ten days ago. “But, damn, it just went by so fast! Guess I was having too much fun.”
“My dad told me that college would be over in the blink of an eye, but I guess I didn’t really believe him,” Parson’s continued, fondly looking at a picture of himself on move-in day earlier this month. “It truly feels like yesterday that I was moving into my first college dorm… when, in reality, it was just under two weeks ago. Time flies!”
“If I learned anything from this, it’s to live in the moment,” Parsons concluded, wishing that he would have appreciated his week and a half of college life a little more. “Because someday — 12 days after freshman move-in, specifically — it will all be over.”
At press time, Parsons was nostalgically scrapbooking the three pictures he has of him and his college friends.
