                                I am genuinely unable to imagine my college experience thus far without OrangeSeeds. Yes, OrangeSeeds allowed me to get off campus, do some community service, and grow as a leader, but the program has truly done so much more for me than that. OrangeSeeds gave me my best friends, my family, and my home-away-from-home. OrangeSeeds has opened countless doors for me on this campus and has provided me with opportunities that I never dreamed possible. I’m truly ecstatic to be able to serve the organization that has done so much for me and to welcome a new seed class to our family.

I can’t wait to give back to this incredible club that did so much for me and help new seeds forge their own way through SU.

                                            This organization is so unique in the fact that it’s one of a kind – at no other college or university will you find yourself an “OrangeSeeds.” It gives first-year students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the university and surrounding community so early on, something I think is crucial when it comes to attending a new school with so many possibilities and unknowns. OrangeSeeds has given me many skills, opportunities, and incredible friends. These friends become family, and inspire me to be better every day because of their love for giving back to the school we call home. You don’t fully realize just how much OrangeSeeds changes you until that first year concludes. The best feeling is when you finally look back and see what an incredible individual you have become, all thanks to this wonderful program.
