CONGRATS UNH WILDCATS CLASS OF 2017!
I can’t believe it’s been four whole years at this amazing university. The time really does fly when you’re getting a good education. It hasn’t really sunk in yet that come fall I won’t be moving my things back up to the res halls or walking into a new class to greet my professor and see which of my friends also registered for the course. I’m going to miss that beautiful campus and all its wildlife - I’ve come to know the individual trees and birds there and I tried to say goodbye to as many as I could! I will surely visit again, both to reconnect with the nature I love and also, hopefully, to continue to work with this university on world-renowned ecological research. I am proud to have had the opportunity to study here, and also to have made so many great friends and meet influential faculty which I will never forget. I am also honored to have been class marshal for the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture, and to be an Honors Program Presidential Scholar, having maintained a 4.0 GPA all four years. It’s been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, but it’s been worth it. Congrats to all the 3500 UNH wildcats that graduated today (drawing a crowd of over 20,000 people!), or those who have already graduated at UNH Manchester. Be proud of yourself, it’s an incredible achievement, and good luck in all your endeavors! And remember… IT’S A GREAT DAY TO BE A WILDCAT! [EVERY DAY’S A GREAT DAY TO BE A WILDCAT!]
