Hawkeye POV: On finals and our seniors

ULM Hawkeye

The week that we all dread (and secretly love at the same time) is finally upon us- finals week. Every semester, we wait patiently as this week creeps slowly into view. But, when it finally arrives, we’re so stressed and worried about having three finals on the same day, we forget to take a breathe and realize the finish line is just a couple of days away.

This week, while you’re elbow deep in notes and highlighted book pages, remember to just relax and be proud of yourself. Another semester is down and you are now closer to reaching the goal that will ultimately make you an elite citizen of this country; you will be closer to graduation.

The Hawkeye would like to congratulate the students who are graduating on Dec. 18. You are about to embark on the greatest journey of your life, where your school bags will become briefcases and your comfy attire will become suits and business like. We hope your years spent here were rewarding not only educationally, but also emotionally.

We wish you the greatest luck in all of your future endeavors, and hope you always remember, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are,” by E.E. Cummings. The Hawkeye would also like to congratulate three of our own “Studly Pubbers” who are graduating this semester.

To Kelsea McCrary, LaMar Gafford and Zach Parker, we will miss you terribly, but have no doubt that the three of you will be successful in everything you do. You three are the hardest workers, and have truly become the best friends we have ever known. May you always remember and feel the love we will forever hold in our hearts for you.
