And that's a wrap!

Since I'm not sure if I'll be able to blog again, I wanted to take this chance to write one last post. So here it goes!

Just over a week ago was commencement (click to see some great 15 words).

That's right, dear readers. I, along with the rest of 2014, graduated. Crazy, right?

I think the scariest part is that it hasn't sunk in. I still feel like I will be returning in the fall, surrounded by my best friends.

I wanted to take this chance to list out some of the things I think Olin has helped me discover:

  1. Boston. Sure, we're a bit outside of the city, and many of us don't get in as often as we'd like, but the culture, sports, and people of Boston still make me smile (and I'm excited to return to them in August).
  2. Skillz. Since day 1, I've been using real engineering software, tools, and strategies to solve problems. And it's only beginning-Olin has largely helped me strengthen my love of learning.
  3. Confidence. Though I've got ways to go, I feel as though I can actually do things, in the engineering sense and beyond. Shout out to the amazing faculty, staff, and teammates that helped me feel this way.
  4. Memories. You can read back through my blog posts to see a few (click here), but they are just that: a few.  
  5. True friends. I've already talked about this, I know. But I love my friends, and I am excited for the adventures we will have together outside of the bubble (friends, see that? I love you.).

So thanks, Olin. I think I can say that all of us have grown in some way or another. I'll truly miss you, and I am thankful for all that you are and will continue to be.

To 2015, 2016, and 2017- keep rocking on, and help Olin grow. To all future generations of Oliners, get excited for the best four years you can't even imagine.
