According to Johnny Depp, “if you love two people at the same time choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second.” Well, after being happy, free, confused, and lonely at the T-Swift concert in Lexington I fell in love with Georgetown College.
Just 15 minutes from my favorite city in Kentucky, Georgetown has a whopping 1,116 students and a killer Equine Scholars program. Perfect, right? YES! I’ll just have to start a UK basketball fan club.
I feel like I could be a number at UK and I am not okay with that. I don’t mean to sound selfish, but I really don’t want to go to college with any Mariemont grads… I am going to the Commonwealth of Kentucky to get away from it all. With 15,153 freshman I doubt I would ever see anyone, but it would be my luck to live the same floor as a Mariemont student.
Back to Georgetown, they have a great Greek life, cowboys :), they have a newspaper, and it is cute! The campus is small and all the buildings are brick surrounded by mature maple tress. The library is sweet and you can check out any DVD you could ever possibly think of. They also have an adorable cafe off the library that smelled like hazelnut and caffeine (it was finals week). And they have the George H.W. Bush Center for Fitness with a putting green, Oliver.
Though the freshman’s dorms don’t have air conditioning, I really like Georgetown, but Friday morning I still have to visit Midway, the all girls college, and Transylvania with their D-III equestrian team (check out their website for some comic relief… I ride like George Morris compared to them).
