It’s Great UF

As my time as a UF undergrad comes to a close, I can’t help but reflect on this wild journey I have been on. From graduating high school as a nervous senior to now being an excited (and nervous) college senior, it seems life has come full circle.

Since coming to UF, my time has been dotted with amazing mentors, friends and experiences. Freshman year I had the worst GPA, but I was having the time of my life. Sophomore year I went on a wild ride called Preview, which inadvertently changed my life. Junior year I was a resident assistant to some of the best people on this campus. Senior year my dreams came true and I figured out my life (grad school).

However, I didn’t get here on my own. There are so many people I’d like to thank that I could spend hours writing thank-you notes. To the friends I have made along the way, thank you for all of your love throughout the years. To the professional staff members, thank you for believing in me when I may not have. Here’s a snapshot of some of my biggest supporters!

While I may not know what life will hold for me after graduating on May 2, I do know the experiences and people who have shaped my path.  It’s Great to be a Florida Gator.
