"Everyone tells you "college is going to be some of the best years of your life," and this is very true. People often forget to mention the things you have to find to make those years fulfilling. For me, it's been Texas Royals. Like many people, coming to college was both exciting and nerve-wracking. There was so much to do and so much to see, but come the end of my first semester, I had yet to find my girl gang to do these things with. Spring of my Freshmen year, from visiting the table at Gregory Gym, to info sessions and through all of recruitment into my Jewel semester, I found what I was missing. I needed people in my life who would laugh with me, cry with me, and set me straight when I need it. I needed people who would “study” with me, aid my coffee addiction with me, and get me out of my room and have fun with me. It wasn’t instantaneous, but Royals gave me some of my best friends. One of my biggest regrets is not finding this group sooner. My advice to anyone reading this is to ignore anything holding you back and dive nose first into anything it is you may want. Take any class, join any organization and say yes to any adventure out there. And of course, join Texas Royals."
