Goodbye and Good Luck!

Hello transfer students,

Thank you to everyone who made it to the Pizza Social yesterday; we had a great turnout, and no leftovers, so I count it as a huge success!

As we all busily prepare for Finals Week, I wanted to take the time to write a few final thoughts, as this will be my last post on this blog.

It has been a pleasure acting as your Transfer Assistant, and I am so happy to have met a great deal of you!  You all seem like terrific people and students, and I have no doubt that you will do great things.

If, like me, you are graduating next Saturday, then congratulations, and well done!  I wish you all the best with everything that you do.  If you will be staying on for another year or two (or three) at Tech, then best of luck with your studies and endeavors!  Enjoy the remainder of your time here; it goes by quickly!

Thanks again for everything!  Good luck on finals!

 


The Home Stretch

Greetings, fellow transfer students!

I hope you are all having a chance to enjoy this beautiful sunshine today.

I know I say this a lot, but I can’t believe how quickly time is passing this semester!  I tell myself that I am about to complete my last couple of weeks at Tech, graduate, and leave, but I don’t think reality has set in.  The idea of graduating is still very surreal.  If you are a graduating senior, I would love to get your perspective on this whole experience, so please feel free to comment on this post, and let me know how you are doing with the approaching events!  And if you’re not a graduating senior, fear not…it comes around before you know it!  So in the mean time, enjoy being a college student.  Take the time to appreciate where you are, and explore the Keweenaw!  Find a student organization, or other activity that you really enjoy, and get involved.  My time at Michigan Tech is coming to a close, and I feel like there is so much I haven’t done!

I hope that those final projects and papers are wrapping up nicely, and that you are ready to tackle the final stretch of the semester!

In the meantime, work hard, and remember to take time for yourself.  Also, watch your inboxes for an update on our final transfer student event of the year!  (Hint: it involves free food!)

See you then!
