This week I have been thinking a lot about my future. I am going to look at houses to rent for after graduation, going to a second interview for a job, and attending many senior banquets. It seems like this semester flew by and now in only 19 days I will be wearing my cap and gown while walking up the steps of Kresge to receive my Bachelor’s Degree.
But even though every decision that I need to make right now is for my future – it makes me look back at the past four years here at Albion. I have made so many great friends here and many memories that I will look back on during my life.
I remember my first ever move-in day at Albion and meeting my roommate and her family.
I remember making chili in the dorm kitchen with all of my friends.
I remember going to New York and Boston with the Briton Singers choir.
I remember going to my first Fraternity party – Highlighter Party.
I remember going through sorority recruitment and get my bid to Kappa Alpha Theta.
I remember switching my major and minor probably five times.
I remember living off-campus in Philadelphia for four months and working at my internship.
I remember all of the Union Board events in the Kellogg Center.
I remember the Big Shows in the spring time.
I remember going to Fraternity Formals in Canada.
I remember participating in philanthropy events like Anchorsplash and Powderpuff.
I remember going to get ice cream with my friends at Frosty Dan’s.
And I will always remember my graduation day. After all – only 22% of the population has a Bachelor’s Degree!
There are so many memories, I could go on forever. Albion has taught me so much but most importantly it gave me the opportunities that I needed to be able to find myself and what I want out of my life. Io Triumphe!
