As much as I did not believe it would happen, senioritis in college is much more difficult than senioritis in high school. Though I still have 2 more years of school after this, I am very antsy to finish up my undergraduate degree. I accepted a position as a Graduate Assistant for Purdue Division of Recreational Sports. I will be working as the Fitness and Wellness GA along with completing my Master’s of Public Health degree. I am so ecstatic about this opportunity.
When I first came to Purdue, I made a list of the traditions I wanted to participate in before graduating. There are now 3 weeks until graduation and I have almost completed the list.
√Sit first-row at a Purdue Football game
√Drink from the Lion Fountain
√Take a picture with the Neil Armstrong statue
√Sled down Slayter Hill
√Drink an entire Den Pop (one too many times)
√Eat a peanut butter burger at Triple X
√Rush the field during a football game (beat Ohio State in 09’)
Shake President Cordova’s hand
Ride the Boilermaker Special
2 more left! I encourage everyone to participate in at least one of the awesome traditions that Purdue has.
Wish me luck!
