H was there of course, and we finally got to see E again after he'd seemingly disappeared for two months. But there were also a lot of students I wasn't familiar with from other universities in Utah, Iowa, and California. The staff who were there encouraged us to get to know each other, but everyone seemed to be in a "no new friends" kind of mood (myself included), so we all mainly just stuck to our school groups. I will give myself credit for purposefully sitting amongst people I didn't know at the table, even though we didn't talk too much. I actually spent more time conversing with the staff than with the other students. But anywho, despite the lack of mingling across groups, everyone seemed to have a nice time.
Thanks to EUSA for placing me and trying to ensure that I enjoyed my experience here! It didn't turn out exactly the way expected, but after getting over the initial disappointments I've found that that hasn't actually been a bad thing.
1 more week to go!
