The first years out. (A Message to Graduating Seniors)

2 May

UHP alumna Kate Golcheski writes us with wisdom and advice for graduating seniors.  This is highly, highly recommended reading.

Dear graduating seniors,

Hello and congratulations—you’re almost there. If you are like me when I was about to graduate, you are probably a little anxious about what the future holds. What luck: I know what your future holds and I’m going to share this information with you. Best alumna ever!

Wait a second, you say. This lady is a nobody! What does she know about anything? And isn’t she only like 3 years older than us? Fair enough—when I was in your shoes I would’ve thought the same thing. In fact, when other people told me the things that I’m about to tell you I thought they were crazy. What me? I thought aghast. But the future looks like raindrops on kitten noses for me!

Seniors: How to Get Your Cords and Tickets

19 Apr

This is so exciting!

Every year we host a grand celebration in the stunning City View Room at E Street for our graduating seniors.  There’s tasty food and drink, lots of friends and family, and a good showing from the Honors faculty (and staff 😉 ) you’ve come to know and love over your past four years at the UHP.  Oh, we’re just so proud of you.

But, before you can get your 5 tickets to the graduation reception (and no, graduates don’t need a ticket for themselves), you need to do one teeny, tiny, last thing for us.  Complete the Senior Survey.  We’ve already emailed all seniors with a link to the survey, which should take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes.  It’s completely anonymous and there are no wrong answers.  But you’re Honors students, so you’ll probably find a way to ace it anyway.

If you’re graduating this Spring and you didn’t get an email from us, you should let us know right away by emailing uhp@gwu.edu.  

After you complete the survey, you can pick up your tickets and your fancy Honors cord, to be worn at graduation.  It’s gold!  Or rather, it’s the color of gold!

Alright, start surveying.
