Major: General Studies
Graduation Date: May 12, 2018
Not Counted Because: Transferred

I transferred to IUPUI because my academic and campus interests changed. I wanted to experience a large college campus and felt like I had exhausted my options at my first school. Transferring gave me a fresh approach to college. After graduation, I plan to enjoy the summer with friends and family, since it will be my first summer in six years without a class. During this time, I will also be applying to jobs in various fields in order to get my foot in the door. My ultimate goal is to open up my own café or start a daycare.

Having a degree is a huge accomplishment for me. It serves as a potent reminder of my hard work and perseverance to accomplish something beyond myself.  Iam proud of my achievement no matter what direction it takes me post-graduation.
