Looking Toward the Fall

This fall is definitely going to be interesting. There are numerous new changes to the school and its procedures, and many things such as school events, classroom setups, and dorm spaces are heavily affected by them. Along with these changes to Groton, there are other things I’m looking forward to in the fall.

First, and most importantly, I can’t wait to see my friends. I haven’t seen anyone from Groton in person since March, and even though the circumstances of our interactions will be limited, I am eager to see them. My friends made Groton even more enjoyable and comfortable for me, and they always brightened my day and pushed me to be the best person I could be.

Second, I’m excited about move-in day. As mentioned before, a lot of things have changed at Groton, and move-in day is one of them. Along with seeing some of my friends for the first time, I will also be essentially moving myself in for the first time. While this may not seem like a big deal, I’m excited to design my room and choose where things should go, opposed to my parents having that job last year.

Third, I’m interested in how the classroom environment will feel. It will obviously be different from anything I’ve experienced before at Groton, and I’m curious about how certain things will flow.

This fall is going to be unique, and that makes it exciting for me. As I’ve said before, I’m definitely looking forward to it!
