Hokie Alumna

I did it! Technically, I graduated a little over a week ago but between all the craziness I am now back to blog about it! I am so thankful to have been able to attend such an amazing university that has changed me and hopefully, I have changed it a little too. Virginia Tech has been my home for the past four years, and while I am sad to say goodbye to some of the best years of my life, I know my experiences at Tech have more than prepared me for what lies ahead. 


Friday was the university-wide commencement held in Lane Stadium. We had to get to the holding area early since the First Lady was speaking and Secret Service was everywhere! Let's just say I did not get through today without shedding many tears! After the ceremony, my best girlfriends and I had a cookout with our families to celebrate the occasion.

Saturday was the Pamplin College of Business Graduation, and unlike my teary-eyed Friday, I was so excited and proud to be a college graduate! Most of my friends were leaving the next day so after meals with our families we all went out for one last hurrah.

 My sweet friend snapped a pic of me before going on stage to receive my diploma, I was so nervous!

So thankful my Grandparents were able to drive from far away to see me! 

Forever a Hokie 

It was an amazing weekend and I could not be prouder to be a graduate of Virginia Tech!
