Admission Goodbye Party
In the spring 2014 semester I applied to be a tour guide on the suggestion of my roommate. I was terrified (and convinced I would never succeed in this job) but a year and a half later I am so sad to be leaving. I've worked alumni events and eight-hour accepted student days, dealt with the strangest questions imaginable, become a tour mentor to new guides, and learned I can memorize hour-long tours but still be able to switch it up on the fly. I've had people email me for further advice, and come to me on accepted student days and say I'm a reason why they chose this school. I'm more flexible and a better speaker because of this job, and I love each and every one of my amazing coworkers.
The goodbye party for this semester had the usual (cake, cookies made by my boss a.k.a. Mom, the word-on-the-back game, posters to write our best and craziest experiences, music) but also gifts for the seniors. I can't get over how sweet my boss is, and how lovely the reviews always are.
Emerson Recognition and Achievement Awards
Each year, the ERA Awards are hosted to celebrate student organizations and their leaders. As an outgoing president, I walked across the stage with my co-president to "pass the torch" to the incoming co-presidents. But I also got delicious (free) food, awesome performances from students, and time with friends.

Of course there were countless other moments as well, more than I can fit in one blog post: watching some of my friends present at the Honors showcase, getting coffee with people, my Gender professor bringing in her brilliant gray macaw (Monty Williams) and cookies (made by the baker who bakes for White House events).
