Hi Everyone! Mollie Ray here! I’m super excited to be writing my first blog post to tell you about the first few weeks of classes and the volleyball season this far. I’m taking Economics 101, Writing 101, Environmental Studies, and Intro to Poverty. Poverty and Writing class are so different than any class I’ve ever taken before and I love it. We sit around a conference table and discuss the reading we did for class, where everyone’s input matters. All of the professors are so great! In high school we had 7 classes every day, so having a 4 class schedule is new and exciting.
Now on to the more important things: volleyball. This season is off to an unbelievable start with an impressive record of 12-1. We’ve traveled as far as Rome, Georgia (8 hours each way) and the bus rides are almost as fun as the games themselves. We play games and watch movies and its a great bonding experience. However, whenever we have long bus rides the issue of food comes up. Which is better, Chipotle, Panera, or Sheetz? The answer: never Sheetz, even though Coach will tell you differently. But in all seriousness, being on the team has made the transition into college a great one, and I practically have 9 older sisters helping me figure everything out. I can’t wait see how the rest of the season pans out, hopefully with many many wins!
Here are a few pictures from the first few weeks!
Until next time,

My great view from the back of the bus. Everyone working on homework on the way to play Averett.
My new favorite place to study is the laundry room. It’s nice and quiet with comfortable seating. What more could you ask for?
