Hello fellow classmates,
If you don’t know me by now my name is Dan Chaconas. I want to start out my first blog with one of my favorite orientation ice breaker games that I’m sure everyone has played, “three facts and a lie.” Some interesting facts about me are I have size fourteen shoes, I’m a die hard Orioles fan, I’m a first time blog writer, and I actually dont mind the food at secobeck. Which one do you think is not completly true?
In the past week I have really grown to like UMW. I decided to come here because I plan to play baseball and the campus looked great. Baseball was what drew myself to Mary Washington but it was the great people that made me want to become a part of the whole UMW experience.
I’ve always enjoyed history classes, particularly American history classes, and I immediately choose this course when I came across it in the list of freshman seminars. I also enjoy biology and political science. So far I have no idea what I want to be as a adult, however, I have a good feeling that I will find something I’ll be passionate about here at UMW and pursue it as a future career.
I’m excited to write more blogs in the future and leave some comments on others. Good luck to everyone and have a great year at UMW.
