Opinion Submission: The post-college transition

There is an explicit privilege in the story I am about to share. There is a privilege in saying that you have graduated from the University of Portland, of being a Pilot. I had the privilege of graduating from UP, living on campus for all four years, being an RA for my last two and watching many friends, a handful of mentors, and few significant individuals walk into my life. I also had the privilege of knowing exactly what I wanted to do after I received my diploma.
