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
Aspen Santa Fe Ballet
On Sunday, my friend Joy’17 and I went to see the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet at the Prince Theater in Philadelphia. We were blown away by the theatrical expression, artistry, and technique these dancers brought to the stage!
Done is Good
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.
May Day 2017
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

My Last Day of Class
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
Senior Class Dinner with KCass
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
Today I treated myself to a massage by Mawrssage, an aromatherapy massage experience run by Bryn Mawr student Jessica JubJub Breet ’18. I was feeling sore from the recent dance concert this past weekend and concerned about my pre-carpal tunnel symptoms. After my thirty minute session, I felt rejuvenated and relaxed. Just in time for finals — just kidding! Continue reading
Spring Dance Concert
From auditions, to rehearsals, to extra rehearsals, and dress and tech (don’t forget the makeup), my undergraduate dance career all came to a finish this past weekend at the Spring Dance Concert. Dancing in the Bryn Mawr Dance Program has been an integral part of my college experience, and I will never forget the technique, artistry, and professionalism I learned from the many choreographers and teachers I have been honored to work with.
