You hear about it. You read about it. You see it happening to people your Facebook friends know. Then it happens to you or someone you know, and you’re at a loss of words. Whether it was good news or bad, you’re in shock, because you can’t believe what you’ve just been told. There are a lot of things I wish I could go back and change if I re-did college, but more than anything, there are two important things I wish I could go back and tell myself.
Dear freshman self,
You thought this day would never come: You’re finally graduating. When you first started school at Auburn, May 2016 was always the targeted graduation date. You were nervous on whether or not you’d be able to do it, but you did. You finished college in four years, and next week, your time at Auburn is coming to an end. Freshman year was only four years ago, but it seems like it’s been a decade. You won’t believe some of the things you’ve experienced. But I do have six things I want you to know.
