A Day in Disguise

April 20th, 2009 blramo12

Hello all!

 

As most of you may know, yesterday was accepted students day here on the Hill. Since my SPUD was canceled for the day due to unforeseen circumstances, I made use of the time pretending to be a prospective student with my friends Clara and Cynthia.

 

It didn’t work.

 

We tried going on a tour of Hanselman, but one of the tour guides happened to have a class with Clara, so eventually we meandered off towards Stein. We ran into another tour guide (whose name I still don’t know), and I asked her a question. She recognized me (and I’ve seen her around campus as well). Clara and I then wandered up towards the “Last Stop Information Center” and were immediately picked up by an admissions counselor, Tran Kim-Senior (despite foiling our plans, she’s still really nice).

 

We sat in on Father McFarland’s closing speech and I was, quite frankly, a little surprised to realize that everything he had been saying was true. I’m used to taking in admissions speeches with a grain (more like a handful) of salt, mainly because I understand that these colleges want you to go to their schools. But hearing Fr. McFarland speak, it was weird seeing how it was all true. I mean, at any other school, I can’t help but feel that my friends and I could have gotten away with pretending to be prospective students. But because Holy Cross is such a tight knit community, that epically failed.

 

I think it’s a good thing that it failed.

 

It’s nice knowing that you’re not going to a school completely filled with strangers. It’s just a pity that we can’t step in on your tours at this point.
