NC State has given me some of the best times of my life. I have had so many good memories during my four years at NC State. Even though my time on campus was cut short, I still have so many great things to look back on. As one of the two graduating seniors (shoutout to Ethan Laney!) in the Office of Parents and Families Services (PFS), I will be sharing my reflection with you, Pack Families.
Some of my highlights include:
I really enjoyed my time at NC State, but there are some things that I wish I experienced.
I am so happy that I had a huge support system at NC State. I had my wonderful advisor and professors, who I could go to at any point in time and talk to them about anything. I have my wonderful parents who were there to support me through all of it. I also had all my friends on campus from classes, student organizations, residence halls, tour teams and the Parent Ally program. I also had my lovely supervisors at PFS that were there to support me through my last two years of college- little do they know they are my references for my job applications and they will be receiving calls.
One thing that is really cool that NC State did for us as graduating seniors is a time capsule. We were able to put pictures and videos and our reflection of our time at NC State into the time capsule which will be in the Memorial Belltower. I think this was a special way to be connected with the university, even though this semester was not what we were anticipating for our final semester. We weren’t really expecting our graduation to be postponed, but NC State gave us something that we will be a part of for years to come.
I really enjoyed my time at NC State and it saddens me that I will be “leaving.” I wish I knew to say goodbye to my friends when we left campus for spring break in March, but as of right now it is a “see you later.” I also only live 30 minutes away from campus, so it is comforting to know that I can go back at any time. I hope that the next time I am on campus, I’ll be wearing all red and moving my tassel to the other side.
