It’s been a hell of a ride for the class of 2021. As a graduating senior, I never anticipated the events of the last year. Somewhere in the wake of online school and commencement, and powering our way through final projects and capstones, it’s easy to forget just how far things have come since a class of awkward 18 year olds arrived on the Bluff four years ago, bursting with nerves and excitement and having truly no idea what was coming. Enjoy a walk down memory lane from a sad, overjoyed and slightly bitter graduating senior. Class of 2021 - we got through this much. We have much, much more ahead.
