Still got about 2 weeks of finals left but I can’t believe I’m finally graduating college… I’ve been secretly shedding tears ever since entering the building and I have class for another 9 hours or so… This is gonna turn into a big ugly cry by the end of the day. Sigh… as much as I’m ready to move on, I’m gonna miss this place so much!!! After a bad high school experience going to college has been the sweetest time of my life.

Congratulations!! I’m glad you had such a great experience in college – it’ll be a great foundation for the rest of your life! It’s okay to be sad, but be proud of the accomplishment at the same time! 🙂

I know the feeling! I’m about to leave my technology center where I’ve been attending for 4 years…I’ve taken 3 different programs and I’ll have 2 associate degrees and a ton of certifications by the time I leave to transfer to a traditional university for my undergraduate studies…I don’t want to leave!
I met my Fiance here, it is where I blossomed into who I am! I still have class for another month, but I can’t help but feel sad that this is my last semester at my school…

@GoddessofNerdvana: me too! I have grown so much over the past 4 years, and have met the love of my life that I’m so happy to get engaged to soon.
@abbie017: Thank you! It means a lot to me especially because I come from a small country in Eastern Europe, and never would have dreamed to make it to the United States. But I found a new home here, more welcoming than my first one. I feel so blessed to be able to stay here and make a new life in this country that has offered me so much. I’ve grown a lot over the past 4 years, and am also just so excited to have met the person that supports me through thick and thin, and the man I know I can grow old with. I’m so happy!!!

I’m right there with ya. I took my last final this morning. I still have to go back and proctor a freshman level class on Thursday, so it hasn’t really hit me yet. The last day of class was definately tough. Graduation is going to be tough too, but I don’t think it’s really going to hit until SO starts a new semester. Congrats on graduating though!
