During February conference I had the chance to go out of town for a college visit to Eastern University in St. David’s, Pennsylvania. I decided to attend Eastern in December because of what it had to offer someone like me from out-of-state. I really wanted to see if I liked it and I was looking forward to my trip for a while. At the end of the trip I was ready to call Eastern my home for the next four years of my life and couldn’t wait to attend in the fall.

I never have had the chance to visit Pennsylvania and when I got there I automatically fell in love with the cold weather, snow and architecture of the state. The buildings are older, reflecting the state’s history with modern styles added to them. One of the most famous buildings that I was able to see is Independence Hall, where the delegates of the 13 colonies created and signed the constitution in 1787. I was also able to see the Liberty Bell in a museum right across from Independence Hall in its original structure.

The most exciting part of the trip was visiting Eastern. Walking through the campus made me realize how gorgeous it really was. Set in a small town, Eastern is surrounded with trees and beautiful lakes that add to the beauty of the campus. I really enjoyed the hills that overlooked everything and the ability to walk from place to place without having to go a long way.. I went on a tour and it was great to hear all about the history of the campus from the student’s themselves. I got to meet a handful of students who were really helpful to me as a prospective student visiting what the school has to offer. I loved the sense of community that I could feel throughout Eastern and it made me excited about attending the school in August.

Choosing to go to Pennsylvania for college was a difficult, yet easy decision to make. It is very far away, but the community of Eastern and the closeness to everything is what drew me in. I hope to back in May for a day of activities that include getting an I.D. card, registering for classes and meeting other new students. I hope to finish out my senior year strong so that I may be able to go to Eastern in the fall with the confidence to tackle any challenge ahead of me.
