Thank You, Scranton

As my four years as a Royal comes to a close, I can’t help but think back to some of my greatest memories here at Scranton, and how they have impacted my life more than I have realized.  Undergrad was a “rollercoaster ride” to say the least; it had its ups and downs, a lot of highs and a few lows.  Regardless, each and every one of us has become a better person because of this place we continue to call home.  We’ve lived together for four years, and life is going to be friggin rough without having our second families constantly by our sides.

But, if there is one thing that Scranton has taught me, it’s that the friendships we make here are the types that can stand the test of time, and distance.  No matter where we all end up, we will always have a home to come back to, and enough memories to last us all a lifetime.  I will never take my time spent here for granted, and I cannot wait to see what amazing moments life has in store for all of us beyond this small city.  So, thanks Scranton.  Thank you for allowing me to meet some the greatest people on this earth, making it OK to drink five days out of the week, and teaching me how to start the next chapter of my life knowing that coming to a close, is the greatest one yet.
