Memorable moment in Chestnut: On the first day of frosh week, I was worried about walking to campus alone and the whole process of trying to find a friend. So during the LONG wait for the Chestnut elevator to arrive, I said to myself that I should try to be outgoing (at least for these first few lonely minutes). I decided that no matter what, I should introduce myself to whomever was on the elevator. And once the doors opened, I did just that. The girl I ended up talking to became one of my best friends to this day.
