11 Days, 19 Hours, and 52 Minutes.
It is hard to believe that my last four years here at SU is
down to the final two weeks. My experience at SU has been full of excitement,
love, fun, and the occasional dance party. As the end approaches, I have been especially
focusing on these experiences and trying to properly say “see you later” before
I leave to begin my new job in Chicago.
As a final blog post, I would like to thank all of those
people both in Albers and in the SU community who pushed and challenged me
throughout the past four years.
Yesterday, I was talking to my English 110 professor, Dr. Hawley, about
the maturing I have done in Seattle, especially in the classroom. Especially as an Albers student, I was
challenged to stretch my understanding of concepts of material and not be “ok”
with just finding the right answer. The
Albers school has such great resources in its professors and staff, and I have
been so blessed to be at this university and share in its mission of “educating
leaders for a just and humane world.”
The last four years have been incredible and it is because
of the connections I made within the business school, that I have become a more
mature and focused person. This
experience would not have been successful without all of the support this
school shows its students.
As a parting word: don’t be afraid to know your professors,
don’t be afraid to take risks, and don’t be afraid to speak up and your experience
will be so much better.
