Embarrassingly, and irresponsibly, I have neglected this blog.
I have joyously and with much pride graduated from Smith College! Commencement weekend was a sight to behold… we had gorgeous weather, Jane Lynch spoke to my classmates, I won a prize at Ivy Day, and many hugs were given and received.
I’m thrilled to be moving on to the next chapter of my life, and with much sadness but readiness I left Smith… but, with the knowledge that it will always be there for me.
During Commencement weekend — which was also the Reunion weekend for many returning alumnae — I was truly awed by the amazing network that consistently calls our Northampton campus a home. I met impressive, game-changing women who had returned to Smith five, ten, fifteen years after their own commencements and still marched about with the same sense of ownership that they had while they were students. I am so excited to be a part of that network.
Alumnae! That lovely word that is now inclusive of ME.
To my readers, entering Class of 2016ers, prospective students…
Please, feel free to continue to ask me questions about Smith — but if you do so, I urge you to not ask them anonymously. I will happily answer questions privately, but because I have just finished my time as a student, this marks the end of my public posts. Next year will bring a new crop of blogging Smithies, and you can find the links to many others’ continuing Tumblrs on the admission website.
