Letter From the President

Updated: Aug 29, 2022

Hi y’all!

My name is Caroline Escuin, and I am the Fall 2022 President of Texas Sweethearts. I am a Spring ‘20 Sweetie, continuing the Spring ‘20 presidential legacy started in Fall ‘21. I can’t describe how honored I am to be the Texas Sweethearts Spring 2022 Recruitment Chair. Texas Sweethearts is where I feel most at home at UT. It’s given me friendships, academic and emotional support, and a family away from home.

I’m a senior Biology Major with a French minor from Rockwall, Texas. This is my last year at UT, and I’m so glad to have Texas Sweethearts still so present in my life. I joined Texas Sweethearts when I was an itty bitty second-semester freshman. Like many others, after my first semester at UT Austin, I realized I had not found my place. There were only 5 people from my high school that went to UT, and I was not really close to any of them. With the countless number of organizations, I fell behind in joining anything and found I was limited to students within my major. While I had a handful of friends, I felt more isolated and lonely compared to how involved I was in high school. I realized I needed to find a home for myself. As I began to go to all the Sweethearts’ events, I began to bond with actives and found my people. The ones that you relate to so much and don’t have the typical surface-level conversations that take place when you meet new people.

Texas Sweethearts gave me a community. Now I have people to go to football games with, give me class recommendations, text tiktoks to at 3am, and everything in between. The friendships I have made in the past three years are never ending and grow every semester. I am so thankful that I am surrounded by people that push me to grow and be a better person every day. When I look back at all my memories in the past two and a half years, the majority are with Sweethearts. This organization has shaped me so much and allowed me to grow past what I thought I was capable of.

I challenge everyone to keep an open mind during recruitment. It is a busy time with classes and all other events going on. We have all been there and know how overwhelming it can be. But, there is a home for everyone at UT. Don’t feel like you need to change yourself or force yourself to fit in some mold. I found my place here in Texas Sweethearts, and Fall ‘22 we are so excited to help you find your home!

So much love,

Caroline Escuin

Fall 2022 President
