Since graduating from Iowa State University May 2015, I can’t hide that I miss it every day, and I am “Forever An Iowa State Cyclone”. Some days I wish I could repeat the process all over again. School was awesome, and I accomplished so much while attending college there. There is not one thing I did not like about Iowa State. The campus is beautiful (especially during the fall) and I would always feel so safe. Everyone is friendly (it’s an Iowa thing) and I never felt out of place. I don’t think many of us think about how we will miss school once it is over. I used to thing all the time “I can’t wait for this to be over; college is way to stressful”, and there is some major truth to that. College is very stressful and prepares you for challenges that will come your way at the time, and also come your way as an adult. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t work. I was ready for the real world as much as any new graduate. I was excited, scared, and had so many more emotions happening at one time. I was just waiting for your first big step towards your main goal. I can say that I am not anywhere close to my main goal, but I just have to keep working and I will reach it in time.
I feel that I was exactly where I was supposed to be after attending my junior year at Iowa State, which made me wish I would have started there as a freshman. Iowa State has everything I had ever wanted. My fashion design program, sorority life, and many more activities and campus involvement. I grew in so many ways. I learned many valuable lessons and started to see how life can really come full circle when you are trying to figure out your own path. Enough of the nitty-gritty, I want to tell you about these super comfortable work out leggings from NUYU that I will be wearing a lot more this fall. The quality of these yoga pants are amazing. The fabric is very thick and so soft. I will be living in them this fall; I just know it. Maybe even get to a football game so I can rep them there too. I know that they will keep me warm even though there is some mesh on the lower part of the leg. The size I am wearing is a size small, and the fit is perfect. I enjoy the design of these yoga pants, because I feel they are different then the rest that I would normally find at the campus bookstore. As soon as I saw these online I knew they had to be mine. NUYU doesn’t just support Iowa State University. They support other Universities as well with a great mix of apparel. They also have some sorority clothing available that you might love. They have not added my sorority (Kappa Alpha Theta) to the mix yet ,but I can’t wait to see if they do. I know a lot of sisters would love the apparel they are offering that is different and unique from the other sorority apparel.
