Congratulations and good luck! We are all bound to do great things in the future, and I am proud of my fellow students for all we have been able to accomplish over the past four years.

Favorite Time at SCSU

So many to recall. Seeing Joe Biden at Lyman Center, working for the Office of Integrated Communications and Marketing, being a part of Crescent magazine, and interacting with a multitude of staff and students come to mind. The celebrity interactions are also great — Michael Phelps and Leslie Odom Jr. were favorites.

What are you going to miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most?

I will miss participating and being with my undergraduate friends in the classroom and the newsroom. I will also miss working as a university photographer, showcasing campus life to our university community and beyond. I am looking to pursue a master's degree in strategic communications and public relations, and entering the world of news media, journalism, and public relations very soon!

Advice to Incoming Students

Get out of your comfort zone! Try something new, and maybe it can grow into a new passion. And most importantly, be kind to yourself and be good to other people. The relationships and connections you form here will go a long way.
