Reality check--graduation is on May 5, that's almost one month from now. According to the official countdown, 30 days is the exact number. 30 days, and that's including weekends and exam days. This is a number that is as daunting as it is exciting. It will be an awesome experience to gather with the senior class for the last time to receive our diplomas, bid farewell to UNC Asheville and each other, and begin a new chapter of our lives. On the other hand, after May 5, we will no longer be UNC Asheville students, a bittersweet reality that we will bear with us s we join the ranks of the alumni. Yesterday, I picked up my cap, gown, and tassel from the school bookstore, and got an e-mail detailing the activities for seniors in the coming weeks. Tomorrow we will have the 29 Days 'til Commencement Senior Lunch on the Quad. In previous years, I have wondered what this cook out was all about, and now I finally get to experience it for myself. If I can remember to bring my camera tomorrow, I'll take some pictures to share. Other senior events in the past few weeks have included Senior Movie Night (classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off at the Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co.) and Grad Fair, which was a one-spot stop for everything related to graduation and post-grad events. I've included the final senior agenda below in case you're interested in getting a greater look at what we seniors have been up to as we prepare to say goodbye to UNC Asheville.
