I spent the days leading up to Christmas baking cookies, wrapping presents, seeing old friends, and watching all the TV shows I've wanted to watch for the past 4 months.
Because I am frequently reminded of how fortunate I am, I would like to say this:
Stevens is a very small, tight-knit community. It may not be for everyone (people who really want to root for a football team in college), but I truly value the friends I made in college and know that I will keep in touch with them for years to come. These friends and classmates made Hoboken feel like home, and if you're on the fence about coming to the school for any reason, I suggest that you come visit the school again. Walk around Hoboken by the waterfront, eat lunch on Washington Street, stop by for an Athletics event etc. The school will win you over.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone.
