Graduation is Fast Approaching

by Elizabeth Short

In a short four weeks, the class of 2011 will be receiving their diplomas and entering the next step of their life. This might include taking on a full-time job, internship, grad school, or just traveling. It seems like just yesterday I was beginning my freshman year at JMU and about to experience the best time of my life. It’s scary how fast time passes when you are having fun.

This week is the Graduate Fair at the bookstore, which is only making graduation a reality. Every time I log on to Facebook I see at least one status about a friend buying their cap and gown and how depressing, bittersweet, but exciting it is. I plan on picking up my cap and gown this Friday. I don’t know how I will feel afterwards, but I will probably make a Facebook status about the “experience!”

For seniors, how are you feeling about graduation, excited, scared, sad or a mixture? For underclassmen, enjoy the time you have at JMU; make the most of it.
