Time for a Farewell

by Joshua | May 17, 2012

Well friends, this has truly been an exciting journey.  These four years have been I’d say the best four years of my life. Lynn has given me countless opportunities to grow as a person and push my skills to the limits.  This blog is by far the hardest blog to write just because there are absolutely no words to describe these past four years.  For my fellow continuous readers most of you know as I  had mentioned one of my first few blog posts how I was a shy person.  That has changed.

For those potential students looking at universities and happen to come across this blog take the time to read some of my  past blog posts of my journey.  Being that Lynn is a small university you get the chance to meet and introduce yourself to many to people.  What I had noticed here at Lynn it is a great networking tool to be involved within the university in knowing people.  When I was looking for internships this past semester just because I knew someone it helped me get my foot in the door to that internship and get an interview then finding out that I had received that position.

When looking for schools I thought Lynn was the best fit for me because of the small atmosphere, small classes, teacher to student relationship and of course the weather! Who wouldn’t want to go to school in the best weather for four years!  This past saturday on the 12th was graduation.  Graduation is always bittersweet because you have to say goodbye to all your friends for a while but it is also celebrating your accomplishments in the past four years.

The next chapter in life is going to be a bit scary but I know that as I hunt for jobs my friends and family will be supporting me a long the way with what ever opportunity comes a long my way.

This blogging experience was a great opportunity meeting new faces within the marketing department and getting to expand my writing.

Here are a few tips that got me through my four years at Lynn-

1- Join clubs and organizations that interest you

2- When you join those clubs start to be outgoing because it can help you in the long run

3- And then last but not least having a good group of friends that will eventually become your family after college

Well readers hope you enjoyed my last blog this was a great experience!

Senior Salute!

by Joshua | March 14, 2012

Well it is that time of year to start thinking or have already thought of what you want to do with your life.  Today and tomorrow from 11-7pm is senior salute in the green center!

This is extremely important where you receive your caps and gowns, graduation information and of course your graduation tickets!

It still amazes me that graduation is only less then 2 months away time is flying by.  So if you haven’t done something that you wanted to try do it now before time is too late!

Remember don’t forget to go to Senior Salute!

A new beginning

by Joshua | February 27, 2012

Well, for those who don’t know graduation is only a short almost two and a half months away! And for those seniors, don’t forget that Senior Salute is March 14th – 15th in the green center from 11am – 7pm where you receive your caps and gowns as well as graduation tickets so you do not want to miss this!

For those wandering why I might be posting this a tad early, I am fully ready to begin a new chapter in my life and move on. Once you reach your senior and its almost time for graduation you start to reflect on your past and realize what you have accomplished in your life thus far.  I am proud of what I had accomplished so far in my school career but the academic year is far from over, so there are many more accomplishments to be made.

In a previous blog entry I had wrote don’t take anything for granted in your school career because it will be over in a blink of an eye! For potential incoming students or current freshmen you don’t realize how lucky you have it because Lynn truly is a great place and being active in the Lynn community is great because you get to meet so  many different people that may have the same interests as you and can help you in the long run.

Almost Ending

by Joshua | November 26, 2011

Now that Thanksgiving Break is sadly coming to an end, reality is kicking in that first semester is almost over and finals are just a few short weeks away!

For seniors like myself this is a crazy thought because that means we only have one semester left in our college career, and for some that means graduating early in December.  Remember to take nothing for granted in these upcoming  weeks or months, because college is suppose to be the best four years of your life, so live it to the fullest.

If you haven’t done something yet that you’ve always wanted to try at Lynn or just even in the Boca area do it because who knows you might not get the opportunity to do it any time soon.  So try to make the rest of the year count and make it great!
