Emily "Trudy" Matthews
April 17, 2013
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Here's the eighth edition of Meet The Friars and we're checking in with freshman Emily Matthews (Marshfield, Mass.). Emily who is fondly known as "Trudy" by her teammates, attended Thayer Academy prior to arriving at Providence College.
So let's get to it and check in with Trudy!
1. Why did you decide to come to Providence College?
I decided to come to PC for a few reasons. At first, I thought I wanted to go a little further away from home, but stepping onto campus here at Providence I felt a great sense of community within the school and athletic department. I also recognized that there was a lot to do on and off campus, which is true because I am never bored!
2. If your life were a movie, what would the title be? Why?
My life was a movie it would be called "Living the Dream" because isn't every college student living the dream? I have great friends and teammates here at Providence, and I don't have to worry about being in the real world yet.
3. What is your favorite time of day, and why?
My favorite time of day is the afternoon. I love to be outside, especially in the spring and summer weather. This is the time that most people are done with classes and our team gets together to practice. I especially like the afternoon in the warm weather, when campus is lively and everyone is outside.
4. What is the best advice you have ever received and from whom?
The best advice I have ever received is "the first step is the hardest step". My grandfather would often say this to me when I would question going for a run, to maybe go later in the day, if at all. I think this advice can be used in many situations in life. Sometimes it is hard to find the motivation to do things, and I am a big procrastinator. To this day I still think of what my grandfather would say to me, be it working out, school work or other situations where my procrastination begins to kick in.
