My Last Day

Amanda Lasicki on Wednesday, 20 May 2009. Posted in Coursework, Institute Requirements, Life After RIT

Today, I woke up at 7:15, got dressed and ready, walked to class, gave a presentation, then walked home. It didn't seem much different than any other day I'd gone to Campaign Management and Process. The difference was written in my planner and on my calendar and saved as a countdown on my phone and my facebook. After I finished my presentation, I had completed all of my requirements for graduation.

It's a really weird feeling to be done done. It was such an ordinary day for such an extraordinary event. I once read somewhere that less than one-third of the adult American population has obtained a college degree. There should be some sort of celebration. Balloons. Streamers. Anything. I guess I have to wait until Saturday for the celebration...

Right now we're in the midst of Senior Week, a week of events sponsored by CAB (College Activities Board) for guess who? SENIORS!! It kicked off with Senior Night on Friday. There was a dinner in Clark Gym and then activities in the SAU. Ariel came with me and we got some pretty sweet massages. I haven't gone to any other of the senior week events...yet...but I'm about to. There's a senior ice cream social in the quad right now.
