Ten Things I Love About Judson
10). NO BOYS! :)
Thats right I just said I love that there aren’t any boy students at Judson. When people ask me why I chose to go to an all girls school, I respond “Honestly? I don’t know, but I love it.” It is great to be able to go to class in sweats and ZERO makeup. I couldn’t do this at community college when I rode to school with my boyfriend.
The campus is truly beautiful. I love to walk around campus during the spring and the fall. I love the cherry blossoms in the spring and the vibrant colors of fall.
8)Late night fire drills
Ok so this was a joke, but I had to say this. Last night my best friend/suite-mate/dance teacher Jill almost text me to see if I was coming outside during the fire drill. She thought that I may not have heard it or something. She was relieved to see me out front of our dorm, WMU. I couldn’t stop laughing about this, that fire siren is extremely hard not to hear. :)
7) The Bubble
As a student at Judson College, I lovingly call the campus the JUDSON BUBBLE. It is like its own little world. At times I have no idea of what is going on off campus. You may think that this is strange or not desirable, but you would be surprised how much you can get done when you aren’t concerned with distractions.
6)Ballroom Dance Class
My friend Jill is the instructor of the class. Last year I danced the Rumba, at the Judson Gala, with my roommate and our dances partners from MMI.
5)The Dining Hall
That is right I did just said the dining hall!! But not for the usual reason a person would enjoy the dining hall, I love the time that we spend there. Everyday at 11:30 the Sara Hunt Christenberry Dining Hall is filled with students. Every evening at 5:45, we all reconvene for dinner. Our time in the dining hall is not effected by the outside world, (We don’t make cell phone calls and we don’t do homework while in the dining hall.) We spend our time dining and enjoying the company of our friends. I look forward to the dining hall each day and I hate that I can’t eat lunch there anymore (student teaching).
4) Traditions (Hockey Day, Pageant)
I just love traditions. My favorite tradition is Hockey Day. I don’t know of any school in Alabama that plays field hockey, but I wish that the high school that I graduated from did. It is such a fantastic sport. I am not going to lie, hockey players are aggressive, but it is just so much fun! I played my Junior/Soph year but did not have the opportunity to play last year. I definitely plan to play this year.
Hockey day is not the only Judson tradition. We have Rose Sunday, Pageant (Junior/Sophs are practicing now for this tradition), and so many more great activities going on on campus.
3)Small School Experience
This is one of the most wonderful parts of Judson College. The President of the school knows my name and the Dean of Students and the Dean of Academics know my name too. I am important to my teachers, and I know that they want me to be successful. What huge college can boast this?
I grew up going to the same church every Sunday. For almost 15 years I called Roberstadale First Baptist Church my home church. I wanted to find a great church family when I left for school and I found just that at Siloam. College worship on Wednesday nights is a highlight in the middle of my week. The Lord really uses Siloam to minister to Marion's college population.
1)SISTERHOOD (Christian support system, living with best friends)
I LOVE MY JUDSON SISTERS!
