Feinstein '10, Hampshire College '14

A report from Emely Barroso, the scholarship winner I alluded to in the spring:

How was your experience moving into the dorms?

It was so surreal the day I moved in. All summer we had been packing and preparing and then... it was finally the day. When we got to the campus, there were so many cars and people. It was crazy. While we were moving stuff into the room, it got extremely hot and sunny. Everyone got so sweaty throughout the day, and the flies were murder. My mom insisted on cleaning and organizing the room. It was the cutest thing. Also, my hall mates were moving through the hall with all of their things. All of the doors had labels with our names. After I got settled in, I walked with my family back to the car where we all said our goodbyes. It was so bittersweet. I was happy to finally be at the school I had dreamed about all summer, but I realized how much I would miss my family and friends.
