“My second semester at Indiana University was wonderful. It was full of good people and good times that really made me feel at home. My favorite part of this semester was playing bass guitar in the Big Red Basketball Band. As part of this group, I was given the opportunity to travel to the University of Oregon to play at the NCAA Women’s Division 1 Basketball Tournament. The trip was amazing. We went on hikes, visited the Pacific Ocean, and explored Eugene, Oregon. The sites were beautiful and traveling with so many of my friends was a great experience. However, missing class for a week was not so good, but I was able to catch up.

This semester I took more classes than I had previously, and they were more challenging, as well. Because of this, I had to spend more time studying and preparing for exams. However, all my professors were amazing, and they kept me engaged in the subjects which made studying much easier. Overall, I had a great spring semester and freshman year. I cannot wait to see what the future at Indiana University looks like for me.”
