The people that surround you during your four years of college can truly make or break your experience. With that in mind, I just want to take a moment to reflect on how wonderful Holy Cross students can be. Here’s just one example:
A few weeks ago I was buying some soda pop at the food shop in Hogan. It was morning, and I was carrying my standard four or five bags (far too many for a normal person) and I’ll admit it, I was flustered. So flustered, in fact, that after the clerk had rung in my purchases, I couldn’t find my wallet. Panicking, I put all my bags on the ground and knelt down to begin the great search.
On the verge of dumping my belongings all over the floor, I was stopped by the sweet sweet sound of “I’ve got it, don’t worry”. I tried to protest, but the student (whom I’d never met) had already paid for me.
It may have only been $2.50, but during that stressful moment, it made all the difference in the world. I truly believe that this student’s behavior exemplifies the values that Holy Cross students hold so dear.
(And my wallet was in my pocket).
