Today is 1) almost the weekend and 2) the day of the Dean’s List Reception! I was really happy upon receiving my grades for the fall semester, because it was my best semester (both fun and grade-wise) by far and I felt that my hard work really paid off! Many people made the Dean’s List and continue to each semester, but I am not one of those people (#horribletesttaker) so I was really happy to be able to go to the Reception! My fellow bloggers (Sam, Katie and Karl) all made the Dean’s List as well, so I want to congratulate them too!
The reception was held in the University Center and it was a short, nice event. The Dean of Students and the Provost spoke to us and reminded us to always remember where we came from and remember the people who helped us along the way. They also reminded us to pay it forward as we continue in our careers outside of Lehigh. I’m such a sucker for those sentimental talks (and I’m graduating in 2 months) so naturally, I was all “awww!” at the speeches. There was also a reallllllllly good selection of food: fruit, cheese, desserts, chicken fingers and other hot dishes. All in all it was a really great end to the week and I am so happy I was able to attend!
