        Thoughts on Seeds:

        Since I never visited or met anyone else prior to moving in at Syracuse University, I felt very out of place. However, within a month, OrangeSeeds has become my family and support system here. We do so many community service projects that you could never leave a meeting feeling anything less than fulfilled. Everyone wants to change the world, and with OrangeSeeds, I feel a little a little closer to achieving that goal.
