As we move into final week, I wish everyone the best of luck on their finals!
For this week’s blog, I wanted to reflect upon the past semester and take the opportunity to thank The Maslow Collection and the faculty in the art department for a wonderful semester. I have had a few rough times with Marywood in the past, but this past semester was pretty remarkable.
For a semester packed loaded with required business electives and an online ethics course, I was expecting a semester that was less than remarkable. I began the semester with zero gallery experience or extracurricular activities, but now here I am ending the semester and able to say that I have co-curated my own show with The Maslow Collection, I have personally handled multiple works from artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, and Robert Rauschenberg, I am now a blogger for Where Creativity Works, and I am also now a member of Zeta Omicron, Marywood’s chapter of Kappa Pi National Art Honor Society. This semester turned out to be much busier than I expected, but I wouldn’t trade the experiences for the anything in the world. When I selected Marywood University 3 years ago, I never imagined having any of the opportunities that I’ve had here in the past year.
So as you all roam sleeplessly around campus from studying for your finals and ask yourself why you went to college, take a minute from the stress to not only look ahead, but look behind and think about how far you’ve come. Whether this is your first semester or your tenth, we all have some kind of progress or accomplishment to be proud of.
Have a great week everyone and safe travels home!
