Bone is looking forward to an exciting freshman year with new experiences ahead.
Emily Bone tackles being an adult, making new friends, classes and homesickness within her first month at college.
Not letting it tear her down, Bone is facing these issues head-on and transitioning into her new life here at FDU.
Bone is a freshman from Danville, New Hampshire, majoring in Forensic Psychology.
When choosing FDU Bone noticed something all the other schools lacked.
“Other schools didn’t have that sense of community. Everyone here is so nice, especially the staff,” said Bone.
Bone is looking forward to making her mark through academics and athletics. Looking to branch out, Bone has joined the girl’s fencing team, despite not having any prior experience. She is also a part of the honors and global scholars program.
“I’m excited to get involved on campus!” Bone said, “I think I might even get a job.”
Living far from home has pushed Bone to enter into adulthood. “I am making decisions for myself that I wasn’t able to when I lived with my parents,” Bone said. “I live on my own now, and that comes with a lot of responsibility.”
When asked how she deals with being so far away from home, Bone responded that she FaceTimes her family every night.
“The transition was fairly easy, the hardest part about it was the homesickness,” Bone said. “Talking with friends and family helps the transition become far easier.”
The best advice she can give students who are homesick is to “take some time from your day for your loved ones.”
