Graduation

April 21, 2009 whitneychilds

I can’t believe that in less than three weeks my college career will come to an end! Wow, it feels like yesterday my parents were  moving me into Bermuda Run and I was anxiously awaiting my first day at GSU with a mixture of excitement and fear of the unknown. Having to make new friends, find my way around campus, and even buy groceries for myself was quite overwhelming. It probably took me about a semester to get comfortable with the transition from highschool to college but after that first semester I was head over heels in love with college life. I enjoyed my classes, the RAC, the new friends I made, intramural sports, and the nightlife consisting of the bars and late night parties. I have enjoyed all my beach trips to Tybee, spring break trips with the girls, my golf class at Hackers, and lazy pool days with my roomie. The socials with my sorority, date night at the movies, and meeting new people everywhere I go. I can honestly say with 100 percent confidence I have truly had an amazing college experience and I wouldn’t change a thing. I am a marketing major and absolutely love every class I’ve taken that deals with marketing because it allows me to be creative while working on projects with others to create/market a certain brand or product that I truly believe will be a success. As many seniors count down the days until we walk across that stage at 9a.m. on May 9th, I have that familiar mixture of feelings that I had my very first day. Half of me doesn’t want to give up my wonderful life I’ve created here at GSU, and the other half is excited for the future that lies ahead. As I spend the last few weeks cramming for classes, I also want to take time and reflect over the last few years and how special they have been and think about all the wonderful memories I’ve made and the friends I have endeared and it makes me smile… I love my life and everyone who is a part of it!

    Whitney!
    I can’t believe you’re graduating. I thought this post was really deep, and makes me think of my past two years I’ve spent at Southern. They have gone by so fast, I can’t believe I’ll soon be a junior and taking my major courses. I can’t wait to start getting into my public relations classes and be creative too! It’s good to read that you wouldn’t change a thing, because I feel the same way about mine! You better stay in touch with us Kappas still at Southern while you’re out in the real world rockin’ it!
