Some parting thoughts… 

What has been your favorite thing about being a part of Her Campus Bucknell?  I have loved being a part of such an incredible, smart and talented group of women on this campus! During the fall of my freshman year I felt completely lost. When I had HC meetings to go to on Monday afternoons and articles to write and discuss, I felt like I had a purpose. HC Bucknell has been such a wonderful, positive part of my Bucknell experience.

What has been the biggest surprise of your Bucknell experience? Just how challenging these past four years have been. It's easy to say that "college is the best four years of your life" but to be honest, I think this statement could not be further from the truth. My college experience was nothing like I expected it to be, and although it was a hard, I definitely learned a lot about myself throughout my time here.

What are your post-grad plans? I'll let you know when I finally know! But actually... hoping to work with children in a counseling/mental health setting in a city on the East Coast.

What advice do you have for the next generation of collegiettes? Don't be afraid to ask for help, seek help and be honest with yourself and those who care for you around you that you need support when times get hard. Attempting to do it all "on your own" isn't always the best way to do things. It's important to give help and receive help and I think that can easily be forgotten in the whirlwind of college.

Any last words? HCXO!
