It strikes in the moments I least expect — the sobering realization that, for me, this year will be filled with “lasts.” While many here are experiencing these things for the first time, it was the last time I unpacked in my college dorm room, the last first day of a new school year, and I’ll be taking my last classes from those special professors who taught me about so much more than academics.

Now my final year at PUC is underway, and I’m busier than ever! Papers and assignments are already piling up, arrangements to graduate must be made, events are happening on campus faster than I can keep up with them and work has started quickly accumulating. I already feel time starting to fly by.

It’s bittersweet, and maybe I’m being melodramatic. But as I think back on my last three years here, I can’t help but wish I could have known how quickly time would go by or how much this place would come to mean to me.

I’ve learned about myself and faced head-on those decisions every young person has to, with the support of my parents, professors, peers, and God. This place will always be where I found not only information found in textbooks, but the lessons I’ll keep with me for the rest of my life. I’m willing this year to continue forward in slow motion so I can be sure to capture every moment.
