On Saturday May 13, I graduated! It’s hard to believe that four years of Bryn Mawr have gone by so fast. Sadly, it rained on graduation, but the ceremony was still held outside under the tent on Merion Green and all 332 of us undergrad seniors graduated.
This post is way overdue, but the past week leading up to graduation was Senior Week — a time for the seniors to celebrate their end of finals and last few days at the college. Our class presidents Priyanka and Hannah planned a week full of fun activities and trips. Senior Week also consists of some unique Bryn Mawr traditions. I had a lot of fun spending time with my friends and my fellow classmates. Continue reading
I am back from a blogging hiatus to tell you that… I’M DONE! In the span of the past week, I have completed 2 finals.
My favorite tradition! My last tradition! All the feelings! Thankful to have spent the day with friends, family (yes, my parents and grandmother came!), alums, and the Bryn Mawr community. (Also thankful it was warm and did not rain.) Continue reading
On this lovely Saturday before May Day, I spent the day with some of my closest Bryn Mawr friends in Ardmore, on campus, and in Philly. Also, the wonderful tradition of May Day gifting. Continue reading
My last class of my undergraduate career: Anatomy and Physiology 9-10am, Park 127. It did not feel like an ending to anything yet because I still had 3 assignments to hand in later that day: Microbio summary on my microbe P. shermanii, Physics problem set, and an exercise physiology lab for A & P. On top of that, I had my usual internship at Center for Asian Health. Continue reading
One thing was just crossed off my senior year to-do list: dinner with KCass! By Bryn Mawr tradition, all graduating seniors are invited to KCass’s house at Pen Y Groes to eat dinner. The event is semiformal and is a time to socialize and celebrate our college careers. Food is catered by Wyndham and KCass visits each table to talk for a little. Continue reading
This post is a culmination of going out to Philadelphia over the weekend of Friday April 14 – Saturday April 15. With so little time left in undergrad and uncertainty of where I’ll end up postgrad (NYC? Philly? Wisconsin? Connecticut?), there’s no time better than now to explore Philadelphia! Thank you to my shared monthly SEPTA pass and my close Mawrter friends for all the fun times (and all the ups and downs of college). Continue reading
I have recently been spending a lot of time with a group of young Asian American professionals. The friendship originally grew out of volunteer efforts in the Philadelphia community to get more Asian Americans out to vote. Since then, the group has transformed into a social group planning get togethers at events around Philly or at people’s homes. I enjoy these retreats away from Bryn Mawr and the perspectives of those who are at all different stages of their careers and life.
Writing in retrospective always puts things in a more positive light, but I’d like to believe that I could not have asked for a more perfect end to my fall semester of senior year. With finals done and winter break in full swing, I am taking the time to reflect on the academic and social journey that Finals Week: Fall 2016 edition has taken me on so far. Continue reading
