Spring semester is flying by, and seniors on campus are already buzzing about send off activities to wind down our final days at Loyola.

Today was certainly another reminder that graduation is just around the corner.  Seniors were instructed to pick up their graduation gear from Damen MPR between 9:30 AM and 6:30 PM.  After dishing out a good chunk of change for my cap and gown, I was happy to enjoy some free spoils.  Food, snacks, and various Loyola trinkets were offered at tables all over the room.  I was feeling rather unfazed by the whole thing, that is until a woman offered me congratulations as I walked out the door.  Then it hit me how close I am to graduating, how Loyola has really changed me, and how much I’m going to miss my years in college.

So as my new graduation gown hangs looming in my closet, I look forward to all the fun activities to come.  I can’t wait to celebrate!
