Sunday was my last day at Coe. The morning started off early, 7:45 AM to be exact, as I headed over to the band tent on the library quad. Commencement happens in front of the library and it is a beautiful thing to see. I've included a picture from Coe's website so you can see what I'm talking about.

When it was time for the seniors to march in, the band played College Rite, Coe's own version of Pomp and Circumstance. The ceremony began and the Commencement Address came from former Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus. The band concluded the ceremony with Coe spirit music. It was all said and done at noon.
I came back to my nearly empty room and finished last minute packing before my family arrived to help me move out. Again, I was an expert packer and it didn't take long for my dad, sister, and brother to move everything out. An RA looked over my room, deemed it a-okay, and I turned in my key. It was definitely a little weird to leave campus, knowing I won't be back until August and I'll be living in a different room (granted, it's right down the hall from my old room but still). And of course, now I'm a sophomore and I've completed 1/4 of my undergraduate education.
Now just because it's summer, doesn't mean I'm going to stop my blog. I've still got things to talk about and I hope to write some recaps, favorite memories, and other things to keep the blog going over the summer. I'll be back to more regular posting once school starts again and I have more Coe related things to talk about.
