I decided to be a Y-Group Leader for New Student Orientation again this year.
There's something fun about helping the freshmen get to know the campus.
We still have more activities tonight and tomorrow evening!
Being a YGL is amazing.
You make friends.
People look up to you.
You get to give campus tours (and I LOVE doing those).
We got super cool free T-shirts.
And it's all volunteer work.
And... most importantly for me... I once again feel the enthusiasm that I felt when I first stepped onto this campus as a freshman BYU Cougar 2 years ago.
There's something different about this place.
That's what so many people before me have said.
There's something about walking along these sidewalks.
Something about the buildings.
Something about the spirit. The enthusiasm.
The people. The honesty. How everyone looks so clean cut, wholesome and modest.
Something about the beauty and the nature.
I love this campus with all my heart. I love the environment. I love the standards which the University upholds, and which the people who come here agree to live by.
That's why I help with NSO. I get to remember these great things all over again, as if it were my first year.
I feel renewed gratefulness for the chance I have to be at a campus like this.
Thankfulness for the chance I have to get an education.
Appreciation for all my fellow students who make this campus so great.
Love for my God, who created this earth and made it possible for me to be here.
I love it all.
