Out of class assignment two

Two weekends ago I went to visit The College of William and Mary which was not my first visit.  This weekend was different for me particularly because I had to tryout for the schools cheerleading team!  As I nervously prepared myself for the weekend ahead of me my mind couldn't stop racing.  I have cheered for about 10 years now but regardless it is such a nerve-wrecking event.  I went up on a saturday afternoon and was invited to hang out and stay with some of the current cheerleaders prior to tryouts.  We went to the beach and dinner and all got together that night!  It was tons of fun and I loved having that experience so they could give me pointers on what to do and not to do.  Sunday morning we wake up and all get ready for the long day ahead of us!  We were together from 9:30-5:00 all showing our best skills to try and make the team!  There are 20 spots available on the team but the coach is required to leave spots for incoming freshman who try out at a different time.  Not knowing how many girls she was taking was very scary!  After a long day we all had to leave, the coach explained that she would let us know the following day.  As I drove home that evening I couldn't wait to find out!  After all day of waiting she finally posted the results and thankfully I had made the team!  This helps me adjust to the college so much easier knowing that I have a group of people who I already know.  I also enjoyed my visit not only because I got to have one of the best experiences of my life, but because every time I go I fall more in love with the school and campus!


  1. Congrats on making the cheer-leading team. Tryouts always make me nerves too no matter how many times you do it. Good luck in the fall :)

  2. Congratulations on making the cheerleading team! It's so awesome that you've already found a place at William and Mary and that you've already made friends there too. My biggest fear for when I go away to school is that I will rarely see my friends who are already there, but you won't have to worry about that because you'll be with your cheer team often!
