Tasha Adams is a senior graduating in May. Like Nicole Reither, she is also terrified of all things graduation—failing a class, walking at the ceremony, not finding a job after receiving her degree.  “The undaunted undergrads” is an account of working through last-semester fears and getting the most out of the college experience. My announcements are sent and I am passing all my classes. I have (almost) survived my last semester of college and In less than three weeks, I will have to pack into the Taco Bell arena with all the other graduates and walk the line. I am ...

“The undaunted undergrads” is an account of working through last-semester fears and getting the most out of the college experience. We are down to the wire, seniors. Less than five weeks until the graduation ceremony and if you haven’t already, now is the time to send out those announcements. I hadn’t even planned on walking at the ceremony, let alone send out lame cards flaunting my achievement, ...

Ummm… Two months. Two months until the 2013 graduates pack into the Taco Bell arena with thousands of other people. If you haven’t done so already, RSVP to your Commencement invitation. Seriously.

Sometimes we are so consumed by school we forget there is still life outside school. And sometimes life comes and tragically slaps us in the face. On Feb. 28, a close friend of my family passed away. She was only 12. I got a phone call from ...

Tasha Adams is a senior graduating in May (if everything goes as planned). Like Nicole Reither, she is also terrified of all things graduation—failing a class, walking at the ceremony, not finding a job after receiving her degree. “The undaunted undergrads” is an account of working through last-semester fears and getting the most out of the college experience. I went to the Career Fair last week, dressed in my best professional attire, curled my hair and actually did my makeup. I walked away with one business card for a packaging company—not something I am remotely interested in. I will admit ...

I really want to graduate. I want to be out of school, with a good-paying job and not have to go to sleep every night worrying if I missed any deadlines or forgot about any tests.

Tasha Adams is a senior (hopefully) graduating in May. She is terrified of all things graduation—failing a class and not meeting requirements, walking at the ceremony, not finding a job after receiving her degree.  “The undaunted undergrads” is an account of working through last-semester fears and getting the most out of the college experience. It is only the third week of school and I am already struggling with senioritis. Even this column missed deadline. I just don’t want to learn anymore. If I weren’t so close to graduation, I would take a semester off. At this point in my college career, I ...

Today is the last day to apply for Spring graduation and I spent my weekend stuck on campus in a workshop. Not because I had nothing better to do and not because I needed upper-division credits.

I always knew I would get here eventually, I just didn’t think I would get here so quickly. After attending three semesters of college right out of high school and then dropping out, I took five ...
