I have a really big family – I mean, REALLY big. We’re spread out from California to West Virginia, and Thanksgiving dinners are usually pretty big affairs, with family and friends getting together to share amazing foods and traditions. One of these traditions is one that I’m sure isn’t exclusive to our family – giving thanks –
and for whatever reason, it’s often difficult to come up with one on the spot. But this year – likely my last Thanksgiving in New Orleans as I graduate in May – I’ve decided to think ahead about what I’m thankful for.
First off, I’m thankful for family and friends, both by blood and by Loyola. I’m thankful for every one of the ambassadors who came in Saturday to show our amazing university off to prospective students like you, and who continue to exceed every expectation we’ve had of them. I’m thankful for each person in our Admissions family, and in the lovely blogging family we have right here.
I’m thankful for the myriad of friends I’ve made over the course of four years here, some of whom have graduated, others of which will stay, and for the many more friends my underclassmen friends will make during their time here. I’m thankful for each professor that took the time to help guide me, and the experiences – in the classroom and out – that made me the person I am today. In the end, I’m thankful for everything that Loyola’s given me.
So tell me: what are you thankful for?
