These last few weeks have been busy! I've been finishing up semester-long projects, turning in research papers & giving presentations. I'm looking forward to finishing up all this work & spending time with friends before the end of the semester.
I actually have had some time to see friends recently. I was busy until this past Friday with lots of work & with preparations for the Enterprise Plan Competition. Business majors can enter their senior thesis, a business plan, in a competition, which is sponsored by an awesome alumni, Peter Worrell. I was a finalist in the competition and presented my plan, along with five other teams, to a panel of judges. It was a really exhilarating day! While I didn't place in the end, I had so much fun and I got a lot of great feedback from the judges.

I have gotten to see my friends a little more lately. As people are finishing up their senior theses, we've all had more time to grab lunch or hang out. We had a birthday party last week for one of my roommates, Cait, & I was happy to see a lot of friends then.
Lauren & I on P-Day
I had a great day on Saturday because it was P-Day, or Preparation Day, here at Saint Mike's. Basically our school puts on a mini festival the Saturday before finals every spring semester. There was a food tent & inflatables & the Second City improv group came in the evening to perform. It was a fun day to see friends and relax before finals begin this coming Friday.

A somewhat sad event happened on Monday - our final Founders Society meeting! Every spring, the last Founders meeting is a bit of a party. We have dinner and awards are given out to graduating seniors & to other dedicated members. As the Online Media & Communications Coordinator, it was also a little sad to know that it was the last event I ever had to plan!
Our award - a basket of cheese & other goodies
We had an awesome event. It was fun & I got to see most of my friends & a few of my favorite admissions counselors & marketing staff members. I was also lucky - besides getting two "awards" for being a senior and a Founders coordinator, my entire townhouse won the MVP award!
Usually this award is given to a single member, but this year the four of us were given the award for being so dedicated to tour guiding & blogging these past four years. In addition, we opened our house up for prospective students & families during every open house event, which was really fun. Since it's a known fact that everyone in our house loves cheese, our award was a basket of cheese & snacks, plus some glasses with the Saint Mike's logo.
All around, my last week has been exciting & fun here at Saint Mike's. I plan to post once more in a wrap-up of my last four years here! It may get emotional, so prepare yourselves.
