Another school year has come and gone, it is great to see friends and family members achieve a milestone in their lives.
My family was fortunate to have our second graduate, my sister graduated from Northeastern Illinois University on Saturday, May 5, 2012. It has been long overdue but she has had two great reasons to defer her graduation. Everyone in the family is very proud of her and we are extremely proud of all of her accomplishments.
Along with my family members graduating, a lot of my extended SHPE Familia graduated on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. My good friend Qetsiy’ah and my advisor Lizbeth Barajas graduated on Thursday from the College of Education.
The College of Engineering graduated on Saturday at 2:00 PM, it was a lot smaller than the other three graduations I attended this year. I was so happy to see my friends some of whom I started my undergraduate degree with graduate. In total about twelve SHPE Familia Members (Jorge, Jose, Carlos, Cristina, Alberto, Dennis, Elizabeth, Gamaliel, Abel, Ricardo, Rafael, and Camilo) graduated on Saturday.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences graduated on Sunday morning. It was a big graduation I was surprised to see the graduation end on time. Three of my close friends graduated from this college (Lauren, Lourdes, and Hasalia)
A great sense of pride and anticipation has come over me. I cannot wait until I walk down the stage for my undergraduate degree and then for my subsequent degree(s).
