A Thank You to my Alma Mater
The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) has been such a great adoptive “parent” for me these past two years, and today is the last day of my undergraduate career.
I transferred to TCNJ at the beginning of my junior year, when I felt scared and small, but the school’s community embraced me. In my first semester here, I was able to complete extensive research that resulted in one of the best papers in the nation for 2012.
At TCNJ, I grew into someone I’m proud of with real passion and real ambitions, but also a path I now know I want to take, and a means for me to achieve my goals.
Because of TCNJ I was able to go to England, complete research, meet professors that care, and form a network of people that I can always count on.
This is the last thing I will ever write in Kendall hall, the communication building. My home. I wanted my last words in this building, a building that has hosted so many of my words for so long, to be a thank you to the school that accepted a small scared girl and transformed her into a strong, brave woman.
