I will miss this beautiful campus and all of the wonderful instructors and faculty members who have supported me through this stage of my journey. Their efforts have pushed me to continue my education and given me the courage and confidence to set new goals and aim for the sky. I will be attending Mount Saint Joseph University in the spring to begin working on my bachelor's degree in Business Marketing.
