Orientation was a lot of fun.
I met new people and learned from a professor I will have as a freshman for my CSDS (communication sciences and disorders) classes.
An exciting part of the day was picking up my Lancer ID card—I’m officially a Longwood student!
My favorite part of the day was after the welcome talk when we broke into groups by our majors. I go to go to the CSDS building, where an exciting part of the classroom is the “spinny” chairs. My peer mentor, Wesley, is a rising senior at Longwood and a CSDS major. It was nice to hear about the major from a student’s perspective. It made me happy to hear that CSDS is very rewarding and worth all the hard work.
I met another freshman, Brittany Napier, who is in my major. We will have two classes together, and we’re also in the Curry dorm together. It is going to be so nice seeing a familiar face besides my roommate.
My advice to future Longwood students to get the most out of orientation is don’t be afraid to meet new people! Also try to plan with your roommate to go on the same day so you can experience it all together.
I am so excited to kick off freshman year with Longwood traditions, especially Color Wars.
Brooklynn Weissenfluh graduated from Jamestown High school. She has three brothers—not so unusual—but two of them were born on the same day she was. They’re triplets! They decided to break up the “set” when they chose where to go to college, so Brooklynn is at Longwood on her own. However, her older brother did go to Longwood and graduated in 2017.
Brooklynn is a communication sciences and disorders major, and she loves to paint. In high school, her favorite classes were AP psychology and language arts, and science classes. She was involved in the National Honor Society, National English Honor Society and the Exceptional Eagles club, which was a club that helped special needs students.
Here are some random interesting facts from Brooklynn about herself:
- I love popcorn. I usually have it every day.
- I am social butterfly. I love talking to people and meeting new people. It is so fun to me!
- I love country music even though most of my friends hate it. It’s the music I was raised on. Kenny Chesney has to be my all-time favorite. His concert was the first one I went to—in first grade. I love Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett and Dierks Bentley just to name a few others!
