Well it looks like after four years and almost a quarter of school I will be done! In just one more week of classes and three tests I will have graduated from Pacific Union College. After this quarter, I’ll be a third generation PUC graduate, but also the first to not major in nursing!

I am so glad I chose PUC. Thanks to this choice, I have been exposed to so many different facets of education, from taking classes on three different continents, getting to teach classes, being invited into the homes of many of my professors, and constantly being challenged to better myself by the educators here. And to think, I almost decided to go to Walla Walla!

I’ve had some amazing things happen this quarter. After being Student Association president for the last two years, it is fantastic to look at the things being done by this year’s SA. New blood and new ideas. They did a great job planning this last banquet that took place on Sunday. It was the least expensive banquet in PUC history, and tickets sold out in less than two hours. We had Giugni’s sandwiches (which I’ll definitely miss), Big Dipper ice cream, and watched “Inception” at the Cameo Theatre in St. Helena. It was such a great time.

Even though I am looking forward to finishing my last week of college, I am looking forward to the Christmas tree lighting and SA Christmas colloquy almost as much because it’s my last time participating in these traditions. I still can’t believe it.

As much as I am looking forward to enjoying a stocked fridge, an array of TV channels, and a washing machine that doesn’t require quarters before I go through it all over again in law school, I’m definitely going to miss all the friends and memories I’ve made here. Thanks, PUC.
