Today we post the first of our bimonthly Q & A Edgewood College Student Experience Blogs.  Twice a month we’ll post a question, and current Edgewood College students will answer the question based on their own experience as an EC student.  Enjoy.

Barneveld, WI
Major:  Business-Management and Art

A:  The most memorable experience I have had so far was getting to listen to the Yolanda King speech last fall. It was both entertaining and educational. I also bought her book and was one of the first people to have her sign it. It was a lecture that I will never forget.

A:  Being intramural basketball champs.  Intramurals was a lot of fun and I met some great girls on my team.  It was a chance to become active in the college and meet other people.  I created a great bond with the girls on my team and will take that with me for years to come.

Major:  Spanish & Communication Studies
Minor:  Global Education

A:  I think my involvement with student organizations will be unforgettable.  I have had the chance to lead and be a part of some really interesting events on campus and in Madison.  My sophomore year I planned a town-hall forum discussing the future of Western-Islamic relations.  Also, I was able to help plan for the Yolanda King lecture.  (She’s the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr.)  And every week I tutor English as a second language for our Spanish speaking maintenance staff.

Major:  Religious Studies & Spanish

A:  I think so far, my most memorable experience has been helping with Friends Like Us, Edgewood’s Gay/Straight alliance.  The group put on a program with true to life skits and a question-answer session.  Following my participation with the group I thought I would feel some backlash from people when advertising the group, but all I felt was acceptance.  I was proud to be an ally for LGBT’s at this school, a place where they are accepted and feel comfortable about who they are.  Edgewood has allowed me to become who I am and the students, faculty, and staff accept and support me no matter what.

Alexandra
Wisconsin Dells, WI
Major:  Deciding (Possibly Communications)

A:  It was a Friday night and a lot of people were heading out for the night. I didn’t feel that well and wanted to stay in but was upset I would be by myself. I started to head to bed and I had a knock on my door… it was 6 other girls who showed up with their blankets and pillows in hand. We had a little slumber party in my room all sprawled out on the floor and watched a movie and made popcorn. It was great to know I had made friends who were willing to give up their night just so I wouldn’t have to stay in by myself.
