Getting To Know Me–Orientation Weekend Style

Happy Friday Eve! I hope your week has been wonderful thus far.

I have to apologize—as college life tends to require—I hit the ground running with this whole blogging experience and did not take the time to introduce myself! So, here’s a little information about me Orientation Weekend Style 🙂

Name?: Erin Hoolahan
Year?: Freshman
Hometown?: I am from Wexford, Pennsylvania which is a suburb about 20 minutes north of Pittsburgh.
Where I am living: Van Vleck Hall (the oldest and most charming building on campus)

Hobbies?: Baking, guitar and Ultimate Frisbee

Finally got to use Van Vleck's awesome kitchen to bake some chocolate chip cookies tonight! (and they're gluten free :) )

Interesting factoid?: I am a triplet. I have a brother (who is at Slippery Rock University in PA) and a sister (who is at Roosevelt University in Chicago).

How did I find Hope?: Online. Right HERE on U.S News Week’s National Liberal Arts Colleges Rankings. (The story of how I chose Hope, however, may become the topic of a future post.)

Over the course of Orientation Weekend and the week or two following these questions are asked and answered thousands of times. They are a great, succinct way to learn the basics about a new classmate and now I feel better knowing you know the basics about me. 🙂

Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Instagram to see little insights and photos of life at Hope thorough my eyes!

I hope you have a lovely rest of the week!
