Once a Wildcat Always a Wildcat

Once a Wildcat Always a Wildcat


My roommate and I take a picture with our favorite teachers Scott Berube and William Knowles at 2014 Commencement

The time has come when the #UNH14 class has transitioned from going to what feels like hundreds of graduation parties and collecting countless checks in the mail from relatives we don’t even know to the REAL WORLD. That phrase has been tossed around for the past few years of our college careers and we thought nothing of it, until now. Let’s face it, it slapped us in the face. Whether you had a job right out of college or you are still in the process of finding one, the feeling is still the same- strange.

I get up in the morning and go to work everyday and for some reason I feel as if I am going to see my classes finally show up on my Blackboard account. It was a sad day when I finally deleted that app from phone. It is a weird feeling to know that this summer will not be followed by a reunion with all my friends and favorite professors. I am fortunate enough to be able to stay at UNH and continue to live vicariously through my friends that have yet to graduate.

When I look back at my time at UNH I hate to say it, but I regret not doing a lot of things. I regret not getting involved in a club or better yet, sticking to that club. I regret not going to the freshmen pep rally. I regret starting intramural sports senior year. I could go on and on, but the point is: DO EVERYTHING! If there is bit of advice that I will stress to all the remaining Wildcats is to always be able to say that you did everything that you could to embrace your time here at UNH. It flies by and as soon as you can bat your eyes it is over. I know that people say that all the time, but listen!

homecomingI have to admit I was only able to make it to one Homecoming during my time at UNH as an undergraduate.I am very excited to be able to come back to UNH and see all my friends and celebrate being a Wildcat! We don’t know what our lives will look like a year from now, but what we do know is that we will always be Wildcats! #BleedBlue #IBelieveInUNH

Oh, and one last thing: DON’T FORGET WHAT JENNIFER LEE SAID!
