Approaching the End

This past Wednesday was our Senior Honors Convocation, and I was so honored to receive the ACBSP (Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs) Student Leadership Award.  As planned, I headed to a faculty dining room to have lunch with my academic advisor before the ceremony, but was incredibly surprised to see who was there to join us- my dad!  As a surprise for me, he had driven all the way from East Tennessee to Pittsburgh the night before so that he could be there to celebrate with me.

As I had lunch with the two of them and then celebrated with both friends and classmates afterwards, I was overwhelmed by the sense of community and love that are present here at Saint Vincent.  As I walk across the stage to receive my diploma two weeks from tomorrow (how has time gone so fast?!), I will be so proud to become an official alumna of this school and to use and share the skills and virtues I have gained throughout the past four years here.  Here's to making these final two weeks the best they can be!
