Well, it’s official…I’m now a Duquesne University alum. It still hasn’t quite set in yet that this past weekend’s graduation really occurred, and I actually finished my undergrad. But it did. And I did. So my next dilemma was what do I possibly say in my last blog post EVER?
I decided the only way fit to end my four years writing for this blog was to use the opportunity to thank everyone at this university for a fantastic four years and more specifically to thank everyone in the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts for preparing me for a rewarding career and life as I move forward.
Although my life became inevitably busier as the semesters went on and I didn’t get to write as many posts as I would have liked, I hope that some of you learned something from the posts I did get a chance to share and began to understand some of the many reasons why I love Duquesne.
When I heard about this blog during my FAST day in the Summer of 2009, I immediately worked to figure out how I could be a part of it, and it’s been a pleasure to see how much it has improved over the years. What I used to know as the Liberal Arts blog went from a few passionate students posting on a very simple site to the gorgeous multi-platform information station it is today. Admittedly, that makes me feel very old, but also humbled to have been a part of it. I loved connecting with readers and sharing the every day experiences I had on the Bluff so as to encourage others to follow in my footsteps.
I certainly plan to be an active member of the alumni association and an even more active reader of this site, so I look forward to seeing where the new bloggers take it in the future. With Dr. Stoddard and Dean Swindal backing them up, I know it will only continue to grow and improve. I can’t say enough what a wonderful university Duquesne is, and I am very grateful to have spent some of the best years of my life here.
Now it’s on to new things, and I wish all the other new graduates good luck with their own endeavors! To all the underclassmen- remember not to take any moment here for granted because I promise you those four years will go faster than you ever imagined possible.
Thanks for reading and good luck in your amazing futures!
