There are less than 50 days left in the spring semester until Wittenberg’s class of 2012 dons caps and gowns, receives its diplomas, and of course walks across the unlucky Wittenberg seal. But what’s coming up for the seniors after they make their final goodbyes after graduation? What’s the next step after Wittenberg University?
Seniors Erin Saner and her roommate Chelsea Horton, they are “excited to become ‘real people’, but are sad to leave Wittenberg behind.”
Saner said, “if you thought senioritis was bad in high school, just wait till second semester hits.”
On where they are going next, Saner commented, “my plan is to live the dream, but I’m still looking for a job.”
Horton plans to become a teacher after leaving Wittenberg, with the hopes that she will “educate the minds of young children.”
Another senior, Caitlin Lloyd, has both happy and sad feelings.
“I am excited and sad about graduation. I look forward to finally being able to walk across the seal, but I will miss all the friends that I have made here. I wish I could stay at Witt and not have to do all the school work.”
Lloyd is hopeful about her future plans.
“After graduation, I hope to go onto grad school in the field of social work. If I do not get into any schools this year, I will work for a year and then reapply, hopping to pass my light onto others in another school.”
Hillary Monnin is also looking forward to graduation and her future plans as May approaches.
“I am ready for graduation because of the year I have ahead of me. I am starting my job at the end of May and I am getting married on October 6.”
Hillary also enthusiastically says “I am going to be a B.A., M.R.S, an aunt, an employed woman, and a cancer survivor! I can’t wait for the events to begin!”
The class will be graduating on May 12th and from the looks of things, they are not holding anything back these next couple of months. Wittenberg’s Class of 2012 has some very interesting future plans ahead of it after it makes its final walk across campus.
