Its 16 songs (plus a remix) are all very different from the “Purpose” singles.
As an out-of-state student from Atlanta, GA, I didn’t know what to anticipate coming to Eastern. For the most part, I was filled with a mixed of emotions: anxious and excitement. I was anxious because I had a pile of questions still on my mind such as how was I going to adjust to the weather, who was I going to meet, would I enjoy my experience or miss my family, and how was it going to feel like living on campus.
