Classes have been over for over a week now, the last final exams have been completed, and now, the majority of the dorms have been cleared out. Several people have already packed up and moved out back to their hometowns. Others have begun the move out process today and then there are the handful of people who are staying for a bit longer. Some students are taking a May X course, some are taking summer classes, and others are doing summer jobs on campus. I’ll be here at Furman until Saturday because of commencement. Many music majors, such as myself, are playing in the commencement band, so we have special permission to stay on campus.

All my exams are finally over and I can breathe a sigh of relief that I have survived. As people have reminded me, freshman year is over for me, and I’m officially a sophomore. It’s ridiculously hard for me to believe that an entire year has passed, and I’ve conquered a fourth of my college experience. Here at Furman I’ve received an excellent education and encountered several excellent professors. I’ve made some close friends this year and I know that we’ll always keep in close correspondence. Looking back at how far I’ve come since the beginning of freshman year, it’s absolutely overwhelming. I can’t wait to see what sophomore year brings! Last blog post of the year. This farewell…that is, until fall!
