As a nice reflection on the year, a couple of us bloggers decided to get quotes from some first years and sophomores summing up these last two semesters. On that note, here are some of the responses we got from our classmates.
“Life isn't perfect, but you can always learn and grow.” - Raquel '21

As a first year especially, this year went by so fast. It is crazy to look back and think about how much has changed in just the last few months. It’ll be nice to go home for a while this summer, but I’m also excited to see what next school year brings!
