This week was a whirlwind of hectic and busy. Since the school year is coming to an end, all of my classes are beginning to wrap up. This week I finished all of my major presentations, including my Honors Thesis presentation. Quite frankly, it’s a major relief, but still stressful at the same time since there are still a few things to complete. I also attended the last Senate meeting of the year. This was the last Wednesday night that I gave up to sit in the fireside room, debating over what could be done to improve our campus. I hope that with a new school year and new leadership on campus PUC can continue to improve.

As a graduating senior, most of my time is now spent realizing how little time I have left here at PUC. All of the preparations for graduation are coming along and I am beginning to miss PUC even though I haven’t left yet. PUC is a great place for friends, growth and memories, but also rain. It is almost June, yet we found ourselves in heavy jackets and umbrellas one day, and in much warmer style clothing another day. I guess even PUC isn’t willing to admit that summer is almost here and so is the end of the year.

Whether it’s the café food, the library book and never ending link+ orders, or the noise in Irwin Hall when everyone gets out of their classes, I know that soon I’ll be missing so many of the things that we often take as commonplace but that help to enrich our PUC experience. I am glad to have called Winning 335 my home for four years, to have eaten in the café and wandered the halls of many buildings. I hope everyone learns to appreciate PUC for all the good it has to offer.
