Sarah's Welcome Letter

Sarah TajchmanDear Resident,

As your summer is coming to an end, a new beginning lies ahead. FHSU has been a great fit for me as I started my journey here last year as a freshman. My name is Sarah Tajchman, from Junction City, Kansas. I am so excited to be you’re RA for the up-coming school year. I am going to be a Senior this fall. I am majoring in Speech Language Pathology and stay very involved throughout the campus. I am student ambassador and I am apart of 3 different clubs, attend basketball games, soccer, and football. Tiger After Dark is one of my favorite things to be a part of and they give away some awesome prizes, so I hope you will go and enjoy making t-shirts, making a wax hand, playing lazar tag, and trying to win IPads, IPods, TV’s, tickets to concerts and games.

Things that I love to do are: working out (running especially), traveling (I’ve been to Italy, Germany, Finland, Norway, and Sweden), my family and of course my friends are super important to me, I love my weenie dog, and doing anything outside. Last year I was a RA for 6th West of McMindes and it was a blast. Some programs I had was a spaghetti feed, vision boards, minute to win it, 1,2,3 cakes, a holiday party, chili feed, and many more. I have some really fun ideas for this coming year and can’t wait to host them for my new family 2 East. College is a time that you really get to find out who you are and I’m thrilled to be a part of this ride you’ll never forget. 2 EAST is going to be a home away from home, you are going to meet friends that you will have in your life forever. I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you and I hope you all are getting pumped for this exciting ride that lies ahead. Because I have some pretty fun stuff I can’t wait to help our floor grow into a mini community.

I know you probably have a million questions and may be a little nervous, I sure was but that is why I’m going to be there for you. So if you have any questions along the way please feel free to email me at I cannot wait to meet you soon. One of my favorite quotes is “May the worst day in your past be the best day in the future” –unknown.

Have a fantastic rest of your summer and I will anxiously be waiting to meet you all at our new home of McMindes Hall 2 EAST.

See you soon,
