Bye, Bye Seniors

Every beginning has an end and every end has a new beginning. This is a cycle that will continue our entire lives. Look at it as graduating from every milestone in your life. A graduation is a positive ending that reflects over your journey and celebrates the start of a new beginning. If we are all blessed we will graduate from being an infant to a toddler to a preschooler to a kindergartener, to a grade schooler, to a middle schooler, to a high schooler, and then it is off to college we go. When we graduate from high school most of us do not realize that the real journey starts when you walk across the stage, shake the principal’s hand, and receive your diploma.

As a high school student we all want to rush to the end and go to college, but when we get there we get a huge wake-up call. No longer do we have parents watching our every move, no longer do we have teachers making sure we keep up with assignments and no longer do we have the identities we created in high school. We are all the same when starting college as a freshman. It is a fresh new beginning. The start of something new.

 

 

One freshman at Georgia Southern University had a vision four years ago, and by her sophomore year, she brought the vision to life. Imagine starting an organization as a sophomore. Not only are you faced with the challenges of juggling school and your organization, but you have the challenge of juggling a job and a social life all at the same time. Well Ayanna Gant, senior at Georgia Southern University, did just that.

Her Campus Georgia Southern would not have reached the progress it has if it was not for our Alumnus President, Ayanna Gant. She truly does it all. We went from a Bronze chapter to a Gold chapter in just two years, and now we are on the way to Platinum.

We are going to miss all of our seniors, though. This is a bittersweet time of the year where you have to watch your friends and associates move on with their lives. Although it is a sad time it is a happy time too. Only because it is a blessing to graduate from college. College is the place that teaches you leadership, diligence, time management, humility, and courage. It teaches you to go above and beyond what is asked of you. It teaches you excellence and fine tunes you to be the adult you are supposed to be before entering the real world.

 

 

Before our five seniors, Ayanna Gant, Bianca Kamilah, Sam Harvey, Francesca Wright, and Tiffany Skinner, enter the real world, we just want you all to know how proud we are of all of you and your accomplishments! You all are beautiful and intelligent women who will go very far in life. You will all be missed, so be sure to keep in touch!
