No, I'm not talking about the snow (obviously) or my face (tragically) or guys, although I do have a date on friday :)

I'm talking about GRADUATION!!! About a week and a half ago I had a meeting with my Comm advisor just after I paid $30 for my graduation application. She put the notes in my file that, barring any incompletes I may get from my classes this semester, my major is all clear for a graduation on May 1st! This did not mean I was ready by any means... I won't be "ready" until I know I've passed all my classes. However, I met with my minor advisor today and, save an incomplete from my independent study this semester, I will be TOTALLY set to graduate! I'm so overly excited about this, as anyone who has attended college for more than 4 years would know! Yes, I'm only getting a Bachelor's degree and I've been at the school for 7 years. That is completely beside the point.
The fact is, I am FINALLY graduating and it feels AMA-ZA-ZING!!! I am completely stoked and can't wait until that day actually comes! But, until then, I will keep doing what I need to do to get there.

Make sure to check again with the Comm department (I have the same degree as you). I was graduated and they had cleared me and I got a letter a year later saying that I hadn't been properly cleared and I had to take another class! Totally their fault too, so just be warned. Congratulations on seeing the light at the end!

Congratulations! Ya know I always thought graduation was one of those things you look foward to but once it actualy comes and goes it's never as good as it seems to be, but guess what? It's better!!! SO nice to be done :)

That is seriously FANTASTIC!!! It is such a great accomplishment. It took me 5 years, but when the day finally came, it was like a dream. And then, when you apply for a job, you get to put College Graduate. That ROCKS!!! Congratualtions, Lis!
