As of 8:00pm last night, I officially have an alma mater. I am an alumna. I have obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. Here’s me with my diploma and a smile that says, “It only took 6 years to get this thing.”

Despite my lengthy stay in the College of Arts & Sciences, I am incredibly proud to have called Belmont University home for all those years. Here’s hoping that you, too, finish your undergrad studies in less than a decade. Cheers!
