As the school year nears its completion, many of my classmates and I find that we have a lot to celebrate. Prime example: in one of my classes, the due date for our final paper was pushed back a whole week! I’m sure I can speak for my classmates in sharing my excitement.
Outside of class, we have a lot to celebrate, as well. The Graduate School of Education (GSE) and the Wharton Doctoral Council hosted a Masquerade Ball for GSE and Wharton students last Saturday. It was a fun evening to dress up, see friends that I haven’t been able to catch up with recently, and indulge my creative side by decorating a mask. My full time cohort members and I will graduate in May, so while we enjoyed the evening, we also took a lot of photos with each other, trying not to think too much about the good-byes we’re all going to have to say in a month or two. \
Tomorrow Time to Shine will be held in Penn Park to celebrate the success of the Making History campaign. The whole campus is full of bright signs and floating stars, and Locust Walk has a festive air to it. I hope to see many of you there on Friday!
