Howdy! My name is Caroline Bybee, and I am a second-year here at the College of Wooster.
As you may or may not have inferred from my emphatic, cowboy-esque greeting, I hail from the great state of Texas. On that note, yes, I do say y’all, and, yes, I have seen snow before.
More specifically, I come from Houston, Texas – the land of smog, humidity, and a fabulous highway system. I’m loving my time here in Wooster, despite the fact that it is drastically different from the city life to which I am accustomed.
Besides blogging, I have many interests, including languages. I am fluent in English (obviously), and conversational in Spanish. I am currently learning German and Chinese, as well as teaching myself bits and pieces of Guarani (the indigenous language of Paraguay). I have lived abroad for two months each in Nicaragua and Paraguay (over the summers of 2009 and 2011), and I hope to get the chance to go abroad again.
When I’m here in America, though, I’m just your average college student. I love reading and procrastinating, and I tend to over-committ more than is healthy.
I started this blog mainly to give my impressions of Wooster to anyone out there who may be wondering what it’s like; I will try to be as truthful as I can and to share as much of my experience as I can. I hope to help others understand what exactly it is that I love about Wooster and why.
