As cliche as it is to use Dr. Seuss to explain the abundance of paths one can take after graduating college, it’s the perfect way to describe how we feel. Having a piece of paper that says you’ve accomplished something is kind of fulfilling, and I’m looking forward to the life my degree affords me. Talking to my fellow seniors, looking back on the four years we’ve spent at this marvelous institution, we’ve come to the conclusion that we wouldn’t change anything about our college career. The endless, mind-numbing hours we’ve spent working on homework and the projects we’ve put together a couple nights before they were due, really were worth it.
This senior year I’ve had the opportunity to do so many things, from road-tripping along the coast of California, visiting the erratic city that is Las Vegas, and finally writing the manuscript to my research paper (making me a published scientist… woo!). I’ve made life-long friends that I’ll be talking to years from now about the incredible moments we had building the foundation for our future.
My time here at Tech has allowed to me to become someone I’m proud of. As Dr. Seuss said:
I found my path here at Tech, I’m a Biomedical Science nerd that has a love for science, math, and maybe a little bit of engineering, but I’m also a Ravenclaw (#harrypotter), a member of Team Instinct (#pokemongo), a Marvel fan, a hiker, a runner, but out of all these things that make me who I am, above all, I am a Techie. There’s nothing I can be more proud of.
Good luck future Techies! This is the place to be, trust me!
