Liz Morrison, BA: I Finished Undergrad

Today is a day that’s been four years in the making. Today I submitted my last assignment of undergrad. I’m done. In May, I’ll walk across the stage to receive my diploma, shake hands with the chancellor, and then continue walking straight into my future.

It’s crazy how fast the last four years have gone. I don’t know where the time went honestly. The last thing I remember is packing up my stuff to move on campus and now all of the sudden, I’m a bachelor’s degree holder. I started this journey back in August 2010 when I was just a kid on campus trying to figure out where the heck my classroom was. I can’t believe what a dork I was!

After all this time, I’ve grown so much. College turned me into an adult. It taught me how to think, write, feel, respond, engage, and so many other things. Most importantly, it taught me that no matter how difficult something is, it’s never too difficult to overcome. Some of the most challenging days were when I had to juggle my full time internship with my course load. I often wondered if that would be the day I just gave up and quit. As you might have noticed, I didn’t give up!

The experiences I have had showed me new things about myself I didn’t know. They showed me about life and how things change and progress differently than you might have expected and planned for. More importantly, these experiences created great memories and life isn’t worth living without them.

I gathered a few photos from the last four years to commemorate this day I have worked so hard for. Hope you enjoy them!
