What It Means to Be a Second Semester Senior

It's crazy to think that I only have thirteen weeks of college classes left. It's even crazier to know that in three and a half months, I'll be graduating from Saint Mike's. Where has the time gone? It seems like I just barely moved into Joyce & started my first college classes.

Leaving Saint Mike's will be incredibly sad. I love it here! Burlington is gorgeous, I have made amazing friends, I got to study abroad, & I really found myself & discovered what it is I want to do in my life. But mostly, I will really miss the people of Saint Mike's. Moving away means that I won't see Tara, my first year work study boss, or Rosemary, who swipes students into the dining hall. I'll miss all of the staff that work in admissions & everyone that works in the dining hall. I also won't see my dedicated & caring professors, who wrote me letters of recommendation, included me in research projects & recommended me for business competitions.

As sad as it will be to leave Saint Mike's, I'm actually really excited for this semester & for graduation. On Monday I applied to graduate school & I can't wait to start. I'm planning to complete a joint program that will allow me to earn an MBA & a JD, or law degree, in four years. I just applied to law schools and now I'm nervously awaiting the results, which will come any time between February and May.

My final semester at Saint Mike's will be a busy one. I'm taking six classes this semester in order to fulfill all of the class requirements that I have left. I'm also keeping up my same extacurriculars - I'm working as a peer tutor, tour guide & blogger, I'm in charge of the blog program as Online Media & Communications Coordinator, & I'm a mentor through MOVE, our community service group. I'm also trying to see my friends as much as possible & I'm trying to apply for summer jobs & internships.

This semester I'm taking some awesome classes:
-Behavioral Neuroscience
-Business & Public Policy
-Business Portfolio
-Business Strategy
-Legal Environment of Business
-Independent Study - creating a business case with several professors

Honestly, I'm loving my classes so far. A lot of them are pretty difficult but they're all interesting. I think it's going to be a great semester.

Before I sign off, here are a couple photos I took this week at Saint Mike's-
