Students prepare for new year

On Monday, new and returning students flooded the streets of campus to begin a new chapter in their student careers. 

For some students, returning to school can be as nerve-racking as when you first began college. 

“There is pressure on me to do better than I did my freshman year,” Nashville sophomore Erica Minter said. “I tell myself to take things one day at a time because planning ahead doesn’t guarantee a perfect student career.” 

Some students are more laid back and are ready to tackle the day with an enthusiastic attitude. 

“Every first day is a new beginning,” Louisville junior Reginald Speight said. “It’s all about the spirit you have going into your classes and a positive spirit gives good results.”
