Let Me Tell You Something About L-Dub

Let me tell you something about L-Dub. It’s the kind of place where you walk through the front doors every morning with a smile on your face because there are sixty-seven girls waiting to see you. The friends who know you so well, they can cure a bad mood in seconds and make you laugh so hard, you’ll run out of air.

It’s a school where being a nerd is awesome, wearing a puffy pink tutu is normal, and you will never go a day without hearing someone belt out the words to their favorite song. Over and over and over.

You will be pushed so far out of your comfort zone, it will look like a tiny spot in the distance. It’s okay though. You won’t need it any more.  Instead, you earn a new certificate in self-confidence and a ton of outstretched hands ready to pull you up whenever you need help.

Being an L-Dub girl becomes a part of who you are and how you act. Words such as integrity, perseverance, and compassion develop meaning. They change into virtues that you wield with confidence every day. And the best part of this experience is knowing you will never wake up to the pressure of facing this world on you own.
