his past weekend I attended Vanguard's registration and orientation day! I was able to sign up for my classes, meet with my counselors, meet incoming students, and give another tour to my parents. I finally feel like this is all becoming real, and my dream is happening! Now with my class schedule I am feeling prepared and so ready to start. I'm officially on countdown.

Thought I'd share a few photos from my day, along with five things I'm looking forward to at Vanguard come August!

1. Music camp: 
I mentioned this before once I announced my university, but I got accepted into the choir!! I'm not sure which one (co-ed or women's), but either I know I'll be content with. It's seriously a dream come true, as music has always been a passion of mine. I can't wait for music camp as it's four full days of auditioning, and practicing while meeting new friends. I read on the newsletter that a beach bonfire was included one night...can't wait.

2. Sporting Events:
The school pride at Vanguard is awesome! On social media I follow several accounts, and it gets me so pumped to be able to attend these games and events. At Vanguard we have track and field, soccer, volleyball, baseball, softball, cheer, and basketball! Okay, I'm off to go buy yellow everything to keep that pride alive!

3.  Living in Catalina: 
I am pretty sure my dorm will be in Catalina dorm room, as it's the place for all sophomores and transfer students like me! Catalina is the newest building on campus as it provides a walk in closet, private bathroom (with a bathtub), and air conditioning.Hoping to get a room with a view of the baseball fields!

4. Meeting New Friends: 
I could not be more excited to meet my roommates. They say college is where you meet those life long friends, so that's what I'm praying for.

5. Exploring Costa Mesa: 
Vanguard is located in Costa Mesa, Orange County. I've never lived anywhere near here, and I'm so excited to become a local. The beach, hipster cafes, and beautiful shopping malls are all within a 5-10 miles reach from my campus.


  1. This is so exciting! You're going to have the best time. Enjoy every moment! xo

  2. Oh my gosh Jenna I'm sooooo excited for you!!!!! It's awesome seeing you so excited about this, I'm so happy for you!
