With the second half of the semester so busy with exams lined up and papers abound, I lost track of time, and hadn’t even realized it was the end of the semester. Already my junior year here at USG comes to an end, and with it lies my last post for the USG blog. Endings and farewells are always bittersweet – I realize through my posts how much I’ve grown here, how much I’ve learned, and how many experiences I’ve had with both new and familiar faces.
But more than anything, I would like to say thank you. Thank you to the people of the Universities at Shady Grove, the University of Maryland, from my advisors to my classmates who have made my first year here so incredible as it was. During this first year, I had been able to take courses with amazing professors who have taught me so much, had been able to intern at a public accounting firm to gain experience, and grow so much as both a student and person. It’s exciting to know what the second and final year here at USG will bring!
Whether you are currently a student about to transfer to USG, or a student graduating this year, I hope that everyone has had a wonderful experience and will continue to do so! You might be continuing your studies either here or abroad, or you might be taking your first step to a career. There’s no strict timeline or path you must take, as long as you are moving forward at your own pace.
Good luck everyone, and congratulations!
