Honors Retreat- the final retreat
This year will be full of 'last times'; I realize that now, but it wasn't until returning home from this retreat that it hit me. I'm a senior. This is it. I've worked extremely hard for four years to get to this point. I've thought about this day since August of 2010, and here it is, but do I want it? Am I ready for it?
There are days where I say to myself "I should have graduated last semester when I had the chance," and other days when I think, "maybe I could get another degree... I'm already here." The latter choice of days come as a direct result of events like this. Honors Retreat.
As a fourth time returning veteran of Honors Retreat, I thought for sure that I had learned everything there was to know about the program, my peers, the University, and myself as an Honors student. As much as I hate to admit it... boy, was I wrong. It never fails that these students push me further and harder than ever before. Why would I doubt that continued improvement?
My group, my incredibly talented, goofy, and nervous little group were more than what I could have dreamed of. A perfect combination of majors and backgrounds, they morphed together to form a circle of trust and safety. They bought into the idea of being each others net over the course of their college careers, and they gave me the opportunity to truly show them what Honors and the #HottestCollegeInAmerica are all about.
