I am a College Graduate!

This weekend I graduated from the University of Arizona, which means I am officially a UA alumnae. It was so nice to have my parents and brothers in Tucson for the weekend to celebrate.


Wildcat for life! 

Love my brothers. 

Family!

As I reflect on the past few days, I can honestly say that the UA was the perfect school for me. I was away from my family, but close enough to drive home if I needed to. There were plenty of ways to get involved in campus life, and without those opportunities I wouldn't have met some of my greatest friends.

One of my best friends. We met at freshman orientation and got to graduate sitting next to each other!

WE DID IT! Thank goodness Mike and I both graduated this weekend! Love you!

Also, I just want to say how amazing it was to attend the commencement ceremony, with my peers from ALL colleges within the university. It was so cool to see everyone's pride for their degree, and then the collective school spirit... How many times did we chant "U of A" throughout the ceremony?!


I must thank my family, friends and every person I've met in the past four years. For, "I am a part of all that I have met," said Alfred Lord Tennyson, and I couldn't agree more. 


So what's next?!....


I just moved in my with my roommates in Scottsdale, I guess you could call them my parents, and they are throwing me a graduation party on Saturday. After that I'll be house sitting for my best friend, continuing my work with the College of Medicine the following week and starting graduate school at ASU in August. I also hope to fit a few vacations in there too! 


HAPPY MONDAY, XO!
