My Favorite Moment in College

Posted by Jade

It’s hard to think of my absolute favorite moment in college but one of my favorite and most memorable moments was voting for the first time. It was during the 2008 Presidential Election, and there were a lot of things going on at my campus. I remember everyone being so excited and moved by the election and encouraging all voter-aged students to vote. I felt like I was a part of history and making a difference in my country by participating. Of course, one of my other favorite moments was actually finishing college and graduating (smile). It was a proud moment having all of my closest family and friends there who had supported me along the way, and seeing how happy they were for me. I was the first in my family to finish college so needless to say they were beyond thrilled.

My Favorite Moment in College

Posted by Marissa

College was an unforgettable experience for me. I learned so much about myself and about what I wanted to do for my career. Personally, my favorite moment can’t be narrowed down to only one particular event; I have had many favorite moments. Two of the most memorable would be winning an award for public relations from the Journalism department and graduating college. They were very proud moments for me because my hard work was recognized, which is a great feeling. College is what you make it. I truly believe if you get involved, work hard and mingle with other students, you will have an unforgettable experience too.

Graduation and Final Words

Posted by Tanya

After five years, laughs, tears, ups, downs… I am graduating college. It seems odd that we are so excited to become an adult when we turn 18 yet when I am graduating with my Bachelor’s degree with the expectation to get a job and find my own place, the one time we have to grow up is exactly when I do not want to do. I am excited to go onto the next phase of my life yet it is bittersweet. My college experience was amazing. It was hard, but I met amazing people, had great jobs, and was able to do many awesome things.If I could leave you with a few words of advice it would have to be these three things. One, always remain humble. There will be times where you are on top and then there will be times when you are on bottom. It is important to always lift a hand when people need help no matter what positions or awards you may rise to and receive. Second, never forget to make time for the fun stuff. I waited too long to go sunset kayaking and when I finally made time my last year, I regretted not doing it sooner. Go to the beach, finger paint, treat yourself to a dinner, it will only make your college experience that much better. And finally, treat people well. Whether it is the custodian, your professors or other students- you would be amazed at how far a helping hand and a kind word can go. With those little life tidbits I hope you enjoy your college experiences. Make the absolute most of it as it goes by in a blink of an eye.
