It’s been real

This is surreal. I am more than half-way done with my undergraduate education here at Stevens. You always hear graduates go on and on about how fast college flies by, but I can truly say that it hasn’t even felt like a week since I moved away and began the rest of my life here in Hoboken. It all started a month before orientation that I came to Stevens to attend the Stute Freshman weekend. During that time, I’ve met so many great people that I can thankfully say I still see every day. To this day, some of the best memories I have are because of the wonderful weekend I had with the Stute. Naturally, joining the Stute was the first thing on my list when I moved in. Sure enough, not even a blink after that I finished my first semester at Stevens. I built a robot, wrote a little text adventure for E115, and contributed to the Stute. A semester after that, I finished the Design 2 HEMS thing-a-ma-jig, and contributed to the Stute. It was less than a semester after that that I took on the role as Editor-in-Chief of the Stute. Needless to say, a big chunk of my life and identity as a student at Stevens is tied to this wonderful organization. That is why it pains me to say that I will be stepping down from my position. I am very thankful for the great year I had with my members and two wonderful Freshman weekends I was able to organize for two groups of freshmen before this year. Although it saddens me to leave, I am very eager to see what direction the new Editor takes this ship. Thank you for reading and for helping me make such a memorable first half of my undergraduate career at Stevens.
