The college that I went to officially changed its name today -> Castleton State College is now Castleton University. Personally, I think this is awesome and see no problem with it at all. However, I’ve seen a lot of mixed ideas on my social media feeds. Some people think that it’s a big joke while others are excited about the change. Although it will be a little weird that ‘CSC’ no longer exists except for in my memories, I believe that it’s a step in the right direction. I’m mostly excited that I will get a new diploma that says University on it 😉A small school with a big heart is how Castleton is described and I couldn’t agree more. The 4 years that I spent there are some of the best (& worst) times of my life. I learned a lot, not only in academics but about life and the person I was becoming. It’s located close to Killington Mountain where I spent a couple of winters working, snowboarding for free, and causing a ruckus. I played varsity soccer for 2 years… and intramural soccer all 4 years in which we were reigning champs for a few! I fell in love with the beauty of Vermont. Most importantly, I made friends with so many people who’ve changed my life for the better and I now can’t imagine living without.
I’ve said this before and I don’t mean to brag (yes I do), but I have the greatest friends in the whole entire world. Each and every one of you are amazing. It’s like we’re our own little family. When we all get together, which is usually 1-2x a year, it feels as though we haven’t missed a beat. Even though we’re all off on our own adventures now, we all make it a point to keep in touch with one another. Everyone cares about each other so damn much and I’m so grateful for that! I truly don’t know if I would have made it through those 4 years without you all! SO MUCH LOVE <3
When I look back at my time at Castleton, all I can do is smile (and laugh at the absolute shenanigans that went on).
There was sooo many more pictures that I wanted to use but I’ll spare you all; this is already too many 😉 I LOVE YOU GUYS!
