Finding Your Balance from A to Chi: Closing Remarks

College is supposed to be the best four years of your life, so why not love every minute of it?

As scary as it may be to admit, the semester is finally at a close. Now that exams and final projects are upon us, summer internships, beach vacations, and time at home are just around the corner. While it is natural to be excited for four months of freedom, now is the time to reflect back on your year here at Syracuse.

Especially for those students returning in the fall, it’s time to start making goals for your upcoming school year. Whether it’s pushing yourself to do better in classes or broadening your friendship circle, highlight the positive changes you want to make. These four years set the foundation for the rest of your life, so make your college experience unforgettable.

To all of my graduating seniors, live out each remaining day to the fullest. Whether it’s eating dinner with friends on Marshall Street or sitting in the Carrier Dome for graduation, embrace each moment. While you may be sad these four years are over, a new, exciting chapter of your life is opening up. Even though the future may seem scary, these transitional years will be an adventure you will never forget.

Regardless of whether you’re a freshman or senior, always remember: life’s too short to be anything but happy. Do the things you love to do, surround yourself with people who love you, and make the life you have always dreamed of.

It’s that simple.
