For the last four years of my life, I’ve been living in Savannah, Georgia attending college. I attend Savannah State University, and I’ve grown to love and appreciate all aspects of this sleeping city.
Before applying to SSU, I’ve never even heard of Savannah or Savannah State. After living in big cities like Philadelphia and Atlanta, Savannah was a huge wake up call. It’s such a quiet and friendly city where most of the natives know each other on a first name basis. I wasn’t used to that, but I’m surely adjusting.
From being a naive, fun-loving Freshman; to being a wild, partying Sophomore and Junior; to now being a conscious graduating Senior, Savannah has helped me grow up in so many ways. If it wasn’t for SSU and Savannah, I wouldn’t have met the most outrageous, caring, friendly, loving, school-spirited people in my life. I’m learning how to slow down and appreciate the smaller things in life, which really are important to me. Savannah has allowed me to mature A LOT, mellow out more, and remember who I am as the soul.
All those crazy drunken, racy, downtown club nights were epic. And I can’t forget about the spontaneous summer days sun-bathing on Tybee Island. I know after December 2015 I will really miss those everlasting days in Savannah, but I’ll always have the nostalgic memories and the pictures to reminisce on.
Thanks Savannah for allowing me to be great!
