Unchecked and unconstrained, two words that bring out the essence of college like no other. A time when people let go of their inhibitions and rise out of their shells to blossom into entities that define them for the rest of their lives. It's a journey that holds on to us, a journey that breaks us and builds us in equal measures, a journey that shall forever provide us with solace in times of despair and desolation.
