Saturday, August 3, 2013 – The start of the upcoming 2013-2014 school year is around the corner. Summer Session II at LMU will come to an end next week and Fall semester will begin in three weeks. The entry below I wrote in my journal in May of this year when the 2012-2013 school year was coming to a close and the senior class was preparing for their graduation.
May 8, 2013 – Spring semester is wrapping up. Finals are almost over. The school’s event crew is setting up the main campus where the main lawn is for graduation this Saturday. Some of the students I’ve met, helped and worked with will be graduating. One of our work study students, an Art History major, stopped by my office to say good bye. He’s going to San Francisco to study for his Masters/Ph.D. in Asian Studies. I congratulated him and wished him the very best! It’s definitely a closing of one chapter and a beginning of another for the students. Exciting, yet probably nerve wracking, especially the stability of our job market. The graduating seniors will continue to create their own paths. Building up their own momentum. Having been there and now an alumni and still creating my own path at 31, I can relate 100%.
