Featured Alumnus: Eni Asebiomo '12

To this day, I still remember the first thing I saw when stepped onto Berry College's campus, three years ago in June of 2012. There were a couple of complete lunatics in t-shirts, running around, beating on car windows and screaming, as most lunatics tend to do. I remember my dad jokingly asking me whether he should turn around because obviously everyone here was crazy. As I checked in and got a t-shirt of my own, the Jr. Staff immediately corralled us into a large circle in the grass and this is when I became convinced that everyone was insane. The HOBY cheers, which I have now come to know and love, seem extremely wild and crazy on initial contact. I can vividly remember just how maniacal the Jr. Staff seemed as I met them for the first time. 

The only thing better than experiencing that as an ambassador was coming back on Junior Staff. At HOBY 2013, I lost my voice within 2 hours from yelling and attacking cars. For the first time in my life, I found a community of people who not only tolerated my affinity for insanity, but they appreciated and encouraged it. 

Beyond the joy, HOBY has brought to me the most precious thing in this world. Amazing relationships. Smart, talented and outgoing individuals who still manage to remain humble. Friends that I can call on for help at a moment's notice, and people I know will always there for me. HOBY is more than just a leadership seminar. HOBY is a safe space. HOBY is a soul rejuvenating experience. HOBY IS MY COFFEE. HOBY is my family.
