Bailey's Suffolk StoryIf I could tell my 18-year-old self that walking through the doors of 73 Tremont for the first time would lead to so many more open doors, I probably wouldn’t believe it. My Suffolk journey consisted of key memories due to my involvement.
My freshman year, I participated in my first Alternative Spring Break (ASB) trip, in Bel-Air, Maryland. After Bel-Air, I hopped onto the ASB train and rode it all four years. These last two looked different, but different is okay. As a group, we are still creating good in the world; together, we are overcoming the new challenges thrown our way.
ASB has a special place in my heart. So does the Commuter Student Council. I assisted with opening up the Commuter Student Lounge in 2019. I was also part of the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) Honors Council, a group that listens to and raises a voice for honors students.
Any student looking to find their place at Suffolk: get involved, as cliched as that sounds. I have met my closest friends—who I consider my family—while on ASB trips, being a part of the Commuter Student Council, and leading CAS honors students.
