To My Classmates In Our Last Semester

Class of 2017, thank you!

To My Classmates In Our Last Semester
Greta Kissman

I know its hard to believe that we have less than 100 days till the exciting yet terrifying day that is college graduation, but here we are. We together are the Class of 2017 and it has been a great ride together over the past four year.

We have suffered through the agony of required gen-ed classes, struggled to survive the horror of finals weeks, and slept on some pretty uncomfortable twin beds, but all that was outweighed by the fun we shared. I know it is cheesy and cliche to say, but college is where I found myself and a group of friends who became family.

We entered college as a bunch of nervous, excited and impressionable 18 year olds and here we are four years later as nervous, excited 22 year olds who are a little more sure of ourselves. I have a lot of people to thank for my personal growth, but you all, my classmates, have been the biggest influencer of my life during our college careers together.

Thank you for showing me it is okay to not be sure of myself 100%, but always telling me things will get better. Thank you for helping me navigate the relationships with other students and professors. Thank you for all our late night Sheetz runs and binge watching Netflix with me all weekend. Thank you for making me laugh until I cry and sometimes even cry until I laugh.

We've grown up intellectually, but maybe not with our maturity. You all have kept me young at heart and loving life for the past four years. We've reached and surpasses milestones and goals together; the memories we've made along the way will be cherished forever.

Classmates have transferred out and transferred in, but no matter if you were only here for one year or all four, you've made a profound impact on me. College is said to be the best four years of a person's life, and you are the reason why it is true for me.

So cheers to these past four years and to the rest of our lives!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
