The Senior (Citizen) Center
Well my Luther friends, the conclusion of the school year is fast approaching, and I find myself preparing to leave this campus for bigger mandatory grown-up things.
Between everyone I know getting engaged and the Alumni and Registrar’s Offices sending me tear-inducing e-mails, its becoming more difficult to ignore The-Date-That-Must-Not-Be-Named: Graduation.
This isn’t an episode of The O.C. or Gilmore Girls, so don’t categorize me with the overly emotional saps who sit in their room eating fistfuls of Cheetos while listening to Vitamin C and poring over their Pioneer Yearbook to avoid the thought of graduating. I am beyond ready to graduate. However, there are several things I will miss about Luther College, and I have put in requests for the following people/groups to make their own Twitter accounts (and have generated some possible tweets for them), so I am constantly updated on the ongoings of Luther.
1. The SPO Cops. These guys are hilarious and should consider a gig in Marty’s. “Chased down an intoxicated deer that had trespassed onto Bentdahl Commons. Thanks for the help, @dougknick”
2. The Career Center. While their e-mails are not terribly gut-busting, I must acknowledge their superb art skills on the Oneota Bulletin Board. “Spring into your job search with fresh new “digs” and weed out the competition! #gardenpunsarefun”
3. Dean Craft. He’s just a supremely wonderful man and will be missed by all. “@prtorgs, Can’t believe I’m moving to a town called Moorhead.”
4. The Alumni/Development Office. “14 new fundraisers to celebrate! We’ll be hitting up the seniors and recent graduates ASAP. #sesquicentennialforlife!”
5. Vicky Jaeger. It saddens me to think that I will never again know what is up in RecSports. “Glow-in-the-dark scavenger hunt is on! Meet out on the football field, bring a friend, leave your fears. @greglonning, don’t forget the fish! #fitness”
These are but a few of the small things I will miss as I depart from Luther. I have of course been offered a book deal by a major publisher to advise the masses on tips for college, but have turned it down for political reasons.
On a more serious note, thank you for bothering to read my ramblings and thoughts this year. Or at the very least, thanks for using Chips to wrap breakables while you’re packing up the dorm.
