Through the eyes of Smorgan: Who wishes they could be like the cool kids?
I’m a criminal justice major and also run The Eagle, or at least I like to think I do. It’s quite the combination and because of my many different likes and interests I’ve never fit in. I am not and will never be considered one of the “cool kids.” The best part about it is, I’m okay with that but that wasn’t always the case. I used to want to fit in so bad and not even necessarily with the popular kids but with anyone.
